Marco Melandri: 'No WSBK for me'

Marco Melandri says "No WSBK for me"
Marco Melandri looks to have backed away from a possible return to the World Superbike Championship with MV Agusta.

The Italian, who left Aprilia halfway through a disastrous return to MotoGP last season, had been called up as a test rider for the new MV Agusta-Forward Racing project.

However this morning Melandri tweeted:



Leon Camier, who will compete on the MV Agusta in 2016, has taken up testing duties at the two-day Jerez test on the 26-27 January.

Melandri has won five races in MotoGP and 19 in WSBK. He has also been a title runner up in both categories.

owlockey: Melandri's career is a very strange one, 2006 he was proclaimed as the usurper to Rossi and now in 2016 he can't get a testing gig with MV. I also read that Ioda will be in WSBK this year with Aprilia and the line up is between De Angelis, Vazquez (Because of the pull out of Suter in Moto2), Salvadori and Badovini, I wonder if Melandri will try and throw his hat in there if he is still welcomed from Noale.
Point taken. lol.
