Knew something was amiss..
Didnt think it was this!!
Haga got wind of something wrong and put him off his game early in the season.
Checa was an odd signing, seemed to be doing hellish well for a private team, now we know why, they swear the team to secrecy sign a rider also on secrecy, give him factory engines in a privateer bike, he lifts himself ahead of the works bikes and they announce they are pulling out!! They go hey it isnt so bad look what Checa can do, wait until they get our full support next year.
Checas bike was the same speed as Hagas on the straight when it was in front.
Meanwhile Byrne and the other privateer Ducati riders are made to look stupid.
They take us for fools, knew there was something fishy about this Checa thing, also funny he had a couple of engine problems when he was doing to well, if he had led the championship that would have sent alarm bells to even the most optimistic fan.
Haga, us and Byrne have been had.
