Latest silly rumors are Spies to Pramac Ducati and Gresini wants to keep Bautista.

It seems Carmelo has realized he needs Spies in the series and is trying to find a well paying seat for him, even if he has to be the one who pays.

Also, it seems the there may have been a letter of intent with Spies and BMW SBK, but it is about to expire. BMW is in talks with Haslam once again.

Spies better go to WSBK over a Duc ride.

Dani has been racing next year's bike since Laguna. Jorge tested Yamaha's first prototype of its '13 bike--the black bike above-- but set his fastest times on the '12 model.
