I'm assuming they don't want to wait around for Spies.

Chaz on a good bike on a factory team? This could be good.

Leon, I wish him well. Maybe the bike will suit him better. I really had hoped he'd be the first to get a win on the BMW, but it didn't happen that way.

If true, I am very happy for Chaz - he thoroughly deserves it. I'm also sad the way things have turned out for Leon - he's from my part of the world so I always had a soft spot for him. I really thought he was coming good early in the season but he never seemed to recover after Donnington.

That's like Spies going to a second rate Ducati MotoGP squad... Hope the come out with a little more power for Haslam. The current honda is a nail.

No Miller for WSBK next year? Has an break between MMP and WSBK been announced?

Odd for CN to publish such an incomplete schedule. Whats the point? Are they trying to go all Superbikeplanet.com on the rumor front?

I don't think Ten Kate is the worst place he could have ended up. He did well on the underfunded Stiggy Honda and has BSB experience on it too.

I think he has put too much pressure on himself this season though, tried too hard to out perform Marco.
