James Ellison gutted to lose MotoGP ride

James Ellison admitted he was gutted not to get the chance to stay with the Paul Bird Motorsport CRT squad in MotoGP next season. The 31-year-old equalled his career best result of ninth in two out of the last three races but it was not enough to save him from the axe from Bird, who had threatened to replace him earlier...

Jamess was 4th in the crt championship beaten by the 2 works aprila's of puniet and espargaro, and piro beat him on his san carlo honda., What more could he have done on birdy's budget? whilst never quite there as a racer he did himself and the team proud really and poor old shakey may get to see what an arse birdy can be when the chips are down.

Dorna

( Bird said he was asked to replace Ellison after the Misano round in Italy earlier this year, with Dorna putting pressure on him to find a more competitive rider. )

 

Its is Really shite Dorna get a say in just who Birdy puts on the bike and the fact that the team was out of its depth for the early part of the season should not reflect on James effort

Hell what about Colin Edwards hes had the worst year ever dose this mean Dorna will not be allowing him to race next Year ????

Shakey shines at BSB but when it comes to world-class competition he's been found wanting, I doubt he'd do any better than Ellison.

BULLY BOY

Paul Bird Has given James Ellison a hard time for most of the season. The bike was never going to win a race and i think he has achieved  some decent results this year. Paul Bird lost Kawasaki backing in WSB because  of some dodgy dealings involving a gun ect found in the cab of one of his trucks. When you look at some of the other team bosses like Jack Valentine and or the boss of swan yamaha Who appear passionate about the sport and treat their riders with respect. I know if I was a racer who I would choose and it wouldnt be Paul Bird

Ridiculous

Highly doubtful that Ellison is "gutted" about not being able to race for Paul Bird, MotoGp yes, Bird no. He has screwed Ellison over the whole season. Plain and simple he is cheap. Ellison is a brilliant rider, so much about this article is false and ridiculous. Again take a look back at what Ellison has accomplished in his career so far. It is not the rider it is how much the person running the show is willing to put in to it!

Good luck James.

Paul bird is an asshole for how he has treated James. It's a CRT bike for heavens sake. James was given no time. I wish him well. Let's hope he gets a quality ride in BSB.
