I'll be shocked if Debon ends up anywhere other than Aprilia.

I'm not entirely sure that Axel will end up riding for his old man either, what I know of Sito that doesn't strike me as how he'd roll.

Axel has been riding for his dad for the last few years so I see that as pretty certain. Unless someone with ahuge pocket steps in.
Apparently the riders are told to bring 200 000-600 000 Euros to get their rides. Guess that is the biggest cost saver so far...

Roger Lee Hayden in Moto2. What do you think about that?

Actually it makes a lot of sense. Roger Lee is actually pretty f*cking quick on a 600.

Guess that explains why Tommy's on site, come to help out.

Axel has been riding for his dad but my understanding is it was kinda one of those "well we have a bike and noone's using it, so you'd may as well ride here rather than in the national series" deals. I'd really like to see Sito back in the top class tho, he ran one of the best 500 squads imo. He was one of the few that had the stones to tell Honda where to stick it.

I´d say he used to be pretty quick on a 600. I don´t think he will do that well if he went to Moto2, of course it is very dependant on what team he could end up in.

Yeah it was a shame that Sito couldn´t keep his privateer team as they always did well and took victories.

I was very surprised to see RLH as an unconfirmed rider in Moto2 - If he gets the ride I guess Tommy will be the only Hayden without a 'big time' ride eh; that's gonna sting a bit...

Apparently Aprilia have told the teams that they will not continue in their process of delivering a chassie for the Moto2 class. This puts an interesting twist to the teams and the manufacturers in the class.

Fuck me, Aspar has already been testing on the BQR chassis with a 600rr supersport engine!

ohhhhh my, that adds to the complexity, did Aprilia tell him they were planning on pulling out or is he just a smooth operator and was a step ahead of them?

I think they´ve told him more or less and he needs to be on top. The fact he is testing another chassie is probably the base for the rumours starting as well.

I'm frankly surprised that they didn't throw a large sum of money at the RSA and run it as a 2-stroke to beat the 4-strokes the first year.
