The problem is...

''Iannone would be good for Yamaha - he beat MM a few times''

...and Pol Espargaro, Stefan Bradl, Scott Redding among others. The problem is after a year on the Ducati I fear he is in real danger of becoming MotoGP's forgotten man. This sport does not stand still, fast young riders will continue being headhunted from Moto2 while he is wobbling about on uncompetitive machinery. I'm convinced he would be a front runner on a Honda or Yamaha but will he ever get the chance?

I suspect a similar fate awaits Cal Cashcow (best pun I could come up with hung over on a Sunday Morning!), after 2 years on the big red career killer I suspect he will be on his way back to World Superbikes. At least Ducati may have fixed their other dangerous piece of crap by then!

Shame really, it's been quite refreshing to see a Brit doing well for once.

Worry not Bullshrimp...

...After the high profile PR disaster of Valentino's time on the bike, Ducati decided on a rider with no profile whatsoever (Dovi - know him?), to go about the donkey work of getting things in order, without the glare of the worlds media breathing down their leathers. They've now reached a point where they can put a much higher calibre of rider on the bike, who has the merchandising clout to match. Happy days...

AMA ?

Cal could do a lot worse than stay in the States and go AMA racing and make loads of money. Except for the top half-a-dozen racers the remainder of the field qualify as 'riders'. The impression I get is that the 'top' AMA  racers whilst being damn' good appear to be 'big fish in a (relatively) small pond' with a couple of notable exceptions Ben Spies being one of them.
