Thought he is now using Brembo binders?
He team is still sponsored/supported by Nissin and I believe they will be switching back.

As soon as Nissan finishes reverse engineering a set of the Brembos they bought and produce the new Japanese Brembo... now with Nissin logo!

Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Try enough riders and you may find another one who can ride it?

Anybody have an idea where yesterday's AMA race results will air and when? I'd like to watch and don't want a spoiler but on the other hand I'd like to know who won. Thanks

I'll post something in the AMA No Spoiler thread as soon as I see an announcement. Yoop will probably beet me to it.

The races should eventually be here. http://www.amaprolive.com/rr/dvr/ I don't think there are any spoilers on that page.

Sometimes there are spoilers in the descriptions.

Worked for Hayden, why shouldn't Cal earn a million a year for the next few for coming 8th it's not likely he's going to beat Marquez on equal machinery (or Lorenzo and Pedrosa) so it's the smart move.

Oh, I agree that for the money it's a smart move, but not so great for us spectators.

I don't think Cal will be quite so supportive of Ducati should he go there and they continue to flounder. Unlike Nicky, he will probably call them out when they don't deliver.

I don't think Cal will go to Ducati. Yamaha/Crutchlow is the right match for both. Cal is working his situation for all it's worth. He really wants a Yamaha factory ride in 2015.

That cuts right to it. Spot on and no bullshit. Bit like a stoner interview

You expect Rossi to abdicate?

Cal better get as many years on his Ducati contract as possible, because once he starts telling everyone how he really feels ... To the plus; not many interviews for 8th place.

He might make a mark or two on a Gresini Honda, but really he is the right guy at the wrong time. Too old, wrong passport and too honest. He could perhaps achieve notoriety on a Forward M1 by beating some Ducatis, but not the paycheck.
