Suzuki, Neukirchner to part ways

As such, Suzuki Alstare has confirmed it will part ways with Neukirchner after three seasons of collaboration that produced two wins and a fifth position in the 2008 World Superbike standings.

“Alstare Suzuki have had a close collaboration with Max for three years and, during this time, we have encouraged and developed his promise whilst supporting him in the best possible way to enhance his career.

“Max's failure to come and talk to us means that, regretfully, this collaboration has now come to an end. However, we would like to wish him a full and speedy recovery and good luck in the future.

Despite concerns over his fitness, Neukirchner is nonetheless expected to confirm this week that he has signed a contract with Ten Kate Honda for the 2010 World Superbike season.

Max is anything but fit, and two independent specialists have suggested he takes 4-6 months to recuperate... For once, a team was putting its rider's welfare first
