    Ducati CEO Gabriele Del Torchio raised eyebrows last week when he mildly called out American Nick Hayden at the Wrooom launch event in the Dolomites, saying "We are delighted with the confirmation of Nicky, but we expect him to do better than last year."
    He was ahead of Rossi until the crash and injury at Indy.... Nicky needs to grow a set and not be so laid back. If they could build such a great bike Rossi would still be there. If not for Stoner they would still be winless..........

    Right now the 4 Horsemen of the Ducati-clypse should be pooling their beer money to find someone who can channel Stoner. :deal

    And I know it represents the year but for the sake of good/bad luck, couldn't the factory used a different designation than GP13???? BAD juju. How much worse could it get......um, never mind.

    I think every team except Yamaha expects their rider to do better than last year.

    And that Nick would be the first to tell you he needs to do better this year.

    I would say that that is the case. "We love Nicky AND are hoping he does better this year" is what I'd expect was meant.

    I think they'd like Rossi to do better than he did last year. :D

    SOMEBODY has to lower the bar. How can that guy even pick up a laptop when there are guys like Kroptkin around? It's fucking embarrassing. :huh
