Nicky has been trying,maybe why hes looking worn out. It seems like a tough go to sign up for more of the same,maybe he knows something we dont.
Id like to see Nicky come back and run some Mile races,hes real good on dirt as well.
I'd like to see Nicky come back and race the mile also , it would give flat track a much needed boost.
I can't imagine how Nicky feels seeing Vale up front after beating/outqualifying him several times last year. It must be heartbreaking. I'm sure he sees the writing on the wall hopefully Ducati will give him a competitive bike in WSBK next year he's earned it.
