Nicky Hayden hoping for swingarm boost in Sepang

After a dismal Japanese MotoGP at the Twin Ring Motegi, Nicky Hayden is hoping a new Ducati swingarm he will try for the first time in Sepang this weekend will boost his hopes of a strong finish to a disappointing 2012. The American will get the new swingarm factory Ducati teammate Valentino Rossi has been using since Misano for this weekend’s...

Its all about the banter below.....

''It's all fluffy bunnies in the yellow camp ''

Ha ha ha

The gap to the front is more than a swing arm, the natural order will remain, he will still be around eighth but the gap to seventh will have reduced....probably!!

Sort it out Ducati, we could do with some fluffy bunnies in the red camp!!

New Swingarm.

Yep that'll make all the difference to the nail but if he's been hanging out for Ducati to bring him a new swingarm why didn't he just scour MCN classifieds, he could easily have got one for pocket money, in fact I've got a spare on from my RG250 that I would lend him, he could even borrow the whole RG and improve his braking and corner speed whilst holding a tight line (unlike the barge he's on).

I think its embarrasing for him and Ducati that he'll be riding that thing again next year.  His new team mate is going to make him look daft.  Shame because he seems like a nice bloke.

My poor misguided fool - I think it is you who have a fog around your head or is it a red mist - My comment on your post was as much 'on topic' as yours.    Stay away from the hard stuff it's clouding your perception.

The after-season tests should give us a clue Richard. Has Dovi been contracted as lead rider or is Hayden being promoted ?

Lead rider at Ducati in 2013 has to be Hayden because of his experience.

Spies ...

... Nah - just joking.

They're paying him £5million over the next two years so it's got to be Dovi.
