Lots of Biaggi's crew stepped over to ART to work on Aprilia CRT bike in MotoGP.

Leon Haslam ? I don't think he's that big is he ? If he is, I can't say I've ever noticed to be honest but you are right, that is enormous for someone racing bikes.

Leon Haslem is known as The Pocket Rocket. Now, Leon Camier, he's 6 foot or taller.

I could understand how one could be confused because the commentators went from talking of Haslam to Camier quickly.

Yup, that was kinda my thought also. Him and Sykes actually are very tall to be bike racing.

Leon Haslam is quite sturdy, but he is a shorty.

They were talking about one of the guys, being really big and riding with something broken..on him. He was one of two, riding with broken bones. I do not recall exactly who they were. I thought one was Haslam??

Haslam is not tall as others have mentioned. Laverty I think was riding with broken bones but I'm not sure he's that tall is he (taller than Haslam I think though). Was there somebody else ?

pretty sure it was just Laverty and Haslam. Camier is the tall one, I think he was too tall for the Aprilia, hope he does well this season, hoping Hopkins can make a dent too. But it won't hurt my feelings if Biaggi gets a title then retires on top- he looks like he's still got the fire, gotta root for the "old guys".

Oops...once they are from that side of the pond and named Leon, they are all the same to me.
