Roger Lee Hayden gets LCR Honda chance

Roger Lee Hayden, younger brother of factory Ducati rider Nicky Hayden, will replace injured Randy de Puniet in this weekend’s American MotoGP race at Laguna Seca. Hayden will substitute for French rider de Puniet after he broke his left tibia and fibula in a crash during yesterday’s German MotoGP encounter at the Sachsenring. Lucio Cecchinello was locked in discussions with HRC management...

Handbags!

:lol: You guys crack me up! Handbags at dawn I reckon!

Getting back to the point and avoiding all of the political crap. RLH is one lucky bastid getting that ride, no way he deserved it though, no way! Good luck to him if he does well, but he's gonna try so hard he'll be off by lap 6 I reckon, just when he tries to get into his stride. Wasted sponsorship, a wrecked bike, damaged ego and some septics crying over spilt milk. ........

RLH is as good as it gets

as a replacement rider these days. Others will bang on about Mladin and Bayliss, great as they were, but firmly escounced on their sofa's where they belong - who wouldn't have a hope in hades of doing anything anyway. And don't give me that '06 Valencia bollocks - it's an entirely different world now.

Some others will moronically put forth the names of contracted riders doing well in Moto2 or WSBK - ain't going to happen. This leaves us with no more than itinerate journeymen or test riders. RLH whilst young has been playing this game for a good many years now with only occasional results. If he had the 'x' factor it would've shown by now. But hey, I think he's the right choice for Laguna.

In fact I believe all the team managers have got their replacement riders bang on (for differing reasons) this year. The days of 18 year old Abe style front running wildcards are long gone. The edge is that much sharper.
