This guy is a world class racer, but has only ever raced in 125GP's and in Moto2 (best result - 1 podium). I'm hoping for the best, but there's a huge difference between GP125/600's and a Superbike so I reckon he'll be dicing with Aoyama. At least he'll know most of the tracks.

I just wish they had looked into the pool of British Superbike talent.

Maybe a spaniard but a class rider, shame he doesn't know the Monza circuit and as well as running a superbike might be a bridge to far. Hope he does well as I think hes had a rough couple of years and deserves a break.

I am disappointed the the decision with Gadea - Im sure they could have looked further a field with the great talent available to them - ie the British talent for one - but they obviously know what they are doing? - BUT can they let the rest of us know how Lascorz is - no official report from anyone for awhile..surely reporters are still interested in his welfare as I know I am?????

It will be interesting to see how he fares with no experience except Playstation and scootering. A little bit into the deep end on this one. I wonder if he could beat Camier ?????

It will be necessary to have patience regarding reports on Lascorz's recovery - when nerve damage is involved it's a very slow process. It will tax his own reserves of patience to an extent which makes our own irrelevant. Even if his movement is very limited once he's off the paralysing curare-like drugs used when on a respirator, there's hope it will improve over time. I assume they've decided that there's no point in simply restating what we already know and want to avoid speculation about uncertain outcomes. Slight variations mean that even apparently similar spinal injuries can result in very different outcomes over time so we can only hope that no news for now will mean good news eventually.
