so did San Carlo bail from that team? I thought they had to have euro rider to stay and thats one of the reason Spies didn't get the ride.

Good, it's not just me wondering WTF he came from? At least he's not being promoted as the second coming so hopefully he can learn and mature over a couple of seasons, I would rather have seen Pol Espargo having that opportunity at Moto GP.



I can see me staying up all night to see what happens during testing tonight, I'm getting to old for this, I fell asleep on the last lap of Moto GP on sunday night!

Lin Jarvis: "OK, Vale, we need to go over a few things with you about the bike. If you look at the powerpoint presentation, you will see the clutch handle, located here, the brake handle, here, and the throttle, here.."

Vale,"ezzz ok, I understand."

Jarvis: " the traction control now has five maps, located here, here, here and here."

Vale: "itza ok, I see that."

Jarvis: "Under no conditions will you pass Jorge unless we give you the green light, located here."

Vale: ""

Just bad enough to make the decision to become the title sponsor of a MotoGP team -- that will run you out of money in no time!
