    I have a feeling that team is going to get the best out of Leon. Next year is going to be better than this year.

    FIXI Crescent have released Guintoli from contract. Does this mean that Max has hung the leathers up and Guintoli will join Elav in the factory Aprilia team?
    Should be interesting.

    So Althea Racing and Ducati to part ways... Panigale not competetive or too expensive to make it a winner? Who's gonna run "factory" Ducatis and what will Checa do?

    The way I heard it, Ducati wanted Althea to pick up more of the tab for running the team (rumor was that the factory was paying 80% of the freight) and that Althea balked at that. It's starting to look like there will be a Ducati "Corse" team and Checa will ride, his contract being with Ducati. Rumor also has it that Davide Tardozzi will return to the fold as team manager.

    I read something that Speed TV may not carry WSB this year. Anyone have any news on that?
