Sergios best performances have been on a 125 & 250. He can't ride 4 strokes, he couldn't adapt to the Moto2 at all and finished very low down.
This won't work at all.

Get well soon Lascorz!

"Joan, by showing improvements in his physical condition and especially in terms of his respiratory system, has been transferred from the ICU to the Spinal Cord Injury Unit, University Hospital Vall d'Hebron. The Spaniard is fully awake and aware, artificial respiration assistance has been removed and Joan can speak without any problems."

Sergio Gadea??? Really? I bet no SBK fan worldwide picked that one! doesn't exactly get you excited to see how "well" he could perform does it. Like some said earlier bet he will be proping up the rear of the grid. What a waste of a potential race winning bike.

Lets not foget it is a Provec Motocard-run Team, so They have all the right to choose whoever they wish to ride for them, as Motocard is Spanish bike parts company and it makes sense they have a Spanish rider in the team for advertising.
That being said, I never like this fella as a rider, and I dont think he will amaze anyone in WSBK. In all those years in gp racing, he never showed he had what it takes to be a champion in him. Anyway, I hope he proves me wrong, or if not the team gets someone worthy of Riding Joan Lascorz's ride. Gadea is in for a reak treat by having his debut race at Monza, The Biggest Dyno in the world, as Ron ten Kate said.

I'm not gonna condemn the guy, but it is more likely he's gonna slot into a support role for the rest of the season. Work on development, also maybe help him come to terms with the bigger, heavier 4-stroke bikes? Just a guess.

And who knows, maybe he surprises us? I can't see him challenging Sykes. But I'm sure Tom will have some pointers for him. Also, the fact he's Spanish does make sense.

Good luck youngster.

Gadea seemed to me a decent guy but I am not sure he is the right man to the task. I think Provec made a mistake. If they had given Lanzi a chance, in the (likely) wet weather he could have got the bike onto the podium. But in Monza probably even in the dry a top10. Good luck to Gadea though, hope he proves me wrong!
