Haga replaces Hutchinson at Swan Yamaha

Noriyuki Haga will replace the injured Ian Hutchinson in the Swan Yamaha team alongside 2011 BSB champion Tommy Hill. The 36-year-old Japanese rider has been signed for the full season while Hutchinson will revert to the Supersport class once he has made a full recovery from the broken leg he sustained in practice for the Revolution show at the Carole Nash...

Been a fan over the years...

...but the Haga of old has long gone. Had his dreams shattered on a few too many occasions and the spark of desire has faded like a cheap T shirt. To quote in inane Jonathan Green "NEWSFLASH!......HAGA'S COMING!..." but he never did. A swansong paycheck and good novelty value, nothing more, but probably won't see the season out which will be a great shame. Correct me if I'm wrong.....

The legend rides

My real hero has always been Haga, I have a racerep in his 1997 colour scheme on my YZF750R, it's no ordinary R. I have not put a picture of it on any web page as I want to keep it. Haga was robbed in 2000, the R7 was world beating in his hands. Timing has always seen him as a runner up and he was sold a bum deal on a Ducati when they were pulling out after leaving the R1 just as it came of age. He had a second class Aprilia and now gets his hands on a Championship winning R1 at long last. OK, he wil not know his way around the micky mouse Bands Indy, however, as soon as he goes around the GP track, Oulton Park, Snetterton, Donnington, Silverstone, Truxton, well we will see the real Haga. I can't wait to see him grinning. Notwithstanding his poduim antics.

Nori Haga

Looking foward to seeing Nori race in BSB, he maybe a little older than some of the young guns and not familier with all the tracks, but i reckon his experience and ability to race close & hard should make for some entertaining racing.

I anticipate a few podiums and some race wins which he is more than capable of achieving, roll on Oulton Park.

Think Nori will be good, Hopkins came with little experience of UK tracks and look what he did. Just hope they turn the traction control off!!

Older, Wiser, Slower

real shame the Nori pension fund isnt being used for upcoming riders, though I guess he will bring a few more tickets into the BSB weekends. If he is up for it it will be great, if not...
