The champion's bike is available for one lucky rider, but who do you think should replace the retiring Max Biaggi for the 2013 World Superbike Championship?

A much maligned and not even close to his Moto gp form Hopkins barely lost the title in his 1st try!

I think you meant to say Hopkins almost won the BSB Championship in his 1st try, Still impressive for a yank.

Give James Ellison a crack on it, if your not looking for an Italian...he is familiar with the bike, and brings them back to the garage in one piece 98% of the time....#77

The AMA right now is not weak. Let's remember. Hopkins got his butt whooped in the AMA, went to BSB and almost won. The season before BSB, Hopkins was dicing it up with Brett McCormick... who was 17-18 years old at the time. Ironically Brett and Hopper were dicing it up this year in WSBK too.

Hayes is a great rider. He set the fastest time in his 3rd ever GP practice (OK so it was wet, still amazing). Back when Hayes got a couple of Wild Card rides in World Supersport, he was dicing it up with the top guys at the end of the season, riding a different bike with different tires.

I think Hayes would be an awesome fit for that Aprilia. However, being Canadian, I'd rather see Brett ride it. The Kid needs a break.
