I'm starting to get the feeling I had about Spies, hoping, waiting, hoping, still waiting, then finally thinking it will never happen.

He probably signed a 2 year deal last year.

Motomatters reports that Cal and Lucy tied the knot on Sunday.

Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Crutchlow!

It'll be interesting to get Ducati's side (if it ever happens), but my recollection was that Stoner not only shut out the media but Ducati management as well, so in the information vacuum it wasn't surprising that Ducati brass, being the only ones still operating in public, said things that reflected their growing impatience with Stoner's unexplained leave. Unfair? Probably, but Stoner's famous disinterest in PR has its drawbacks.

Smart move..lock down the krumpit, before your career goes in the crapper on the TT.

I know, harsh, but my armchair has very scratchy upholstery.

Ducati considering running Factory team in "open" class in 2014?

Executive summary: Softer tires and more fuel may give the "open" bikes a theoretical advantage and sophisticated electronics may not matter as much with the softer tire...

Imagine that would piss HRC right off being beaten by bikes with a spec ECU.

Go ahead, keep your proprietary software.

Nope..Honda sells plenty of bikes here. They do not need to pimp out their American rider's local celebrity to sell more. Not to mention, him hopefully beating the Ducs will sell plenty on its own. LOL
