    Anyone heard who will be taking Rinaldi's place at GoEleven? Will GoEleven still receive the special attention from the Ducati Factory next season?



    The new BMW has wings/winglets/strakes/cupholders or whatever you want to call them.

    Davies will race with Go Eleven Ducati in 2021.

    Glad the new schedule is out and the Barcelona round is returning.

    No offense to @Scoozi but the only people talking about Rabat in WSBK are MotoGP fans who don't follow WSBK.

    World Superbike isn't the dumping ground they think it is.

    Looks like I get to eat my words. Again. Tito Rabat is supposely negotiating with Barni Ducati and Pedercini Kawasaki.

    No word on Baz renewing with TenKate but it seems like the best option for both parties.

    I thought that the Ducati factory was backing a Rabat move to WSBK to open up the seat at Avintia.

    Between how the Italians run their racing teams and the Italian press who the hell knows what’s going on.

    I'm really excited for the 2021 season. The Hondas made a lot of progress starting from scratch and will continue to improve. Yamaha has a bunch of great riders. Ducati retains three riders who should be able to win or podium at every track. The new Kawasaki is fast out of the box. And SMR/BMW must have offered a lot more than a fat paycheck (if that) to get van der Mark to leave a team and bike on which he knew he could win. They must have a lot of faith in the new S1000rrrrrrr package.

    A few more Moto2 budget refugees are headed to WSS to pick up where Locatelli left off. And every lap of the SSP300 races are just wild fun.
