Toseland to BMW ?

MCN are claiming that Toseland (having failed at Yamaha) is going to be riding for the factory BMW team next season. BMW are under pressure from their board to win the WSB title. Surely any team wanting to win would steer clear of signing a has been like Toseland. The smart money would be to hope that Alstare Suzuki lose their factory backing and go for a winner like Leon Haslam. Much as I hope that Leon stays on a Suzuki next year I cant see how BMW can hope to win on what is a superior bike unless they have a hungry winner on the seat instead of a rider who already has his excuses ready for why he has lost even before the race starts.

Toseland to BMW ?

Well JT isn't a slow chap, I recon he could be a bit quicker than me around a track. bear in mind JT is a double world champion, has raced moto gp, and is still a bit handy on a bike.

BMW could do a lot worse than JT, Leon is a nice bloke but has he got the experiance to tke BMW forward? OK his old man has some form but I would rather go for someone who has a better CV if you get my drift

When you said someone with a better CV did you mean Crash Value, Toseland has a high crash value, Leon don't seem to crash as often  as Toserland
