Any News on Rossi's move to ducati??

I have not found anything in the last 2 weeks. Is it a done deal or are there still
defining the fine print?? Maybe Ducati waiting to see if VR is really fit after the crash?

Nothing official, supposed to announce at Brno. Most inside sources say he will go to Ducati.

They'd take him if he had no legs!!! he's going to be riding the duc....where else would he go? NOT zuk or kawi and he sure as hell wouldn't go back to honda i don't think. i'd like to see what he could do on the ducati too!!

I agree, however, the possibility of him staying a yamaha cannot be ruled out yet. I know of all the salary mess with Lorenzo, but, for whatever reason, Lorenzo is becoming unpopular, moreover, he ended up 2nd last weekend, not bad I guess, and everyone talks about Rossi. I guess nobody likes to have an unpopular rider specially when his team mate is still Valentino....
Its just a thought. It might the tooo far fetched but who knows

If he's becoming unpopular, it really doesn't matter to yamaha as long as he wins the title (which is nearly impossible for him not to do at this point). And really, he's spanish and since spaniards probably are the most race-crazed fanatics on the planet i doubt his popularity will ever be an issue, nor him not being a title contender. Besides, look at hayden and pedrosa. Hayden is prob the 2nd most popular rider in the series and pedrosa near the opposite and honda virtually kicked him (hayden) to the curb before the ink dried on pedrosa's contract.

I agree, anything can happen, but at this point i'd be surprised if rossi stays with yamaha. As far as ducati waiting to see if rossi'll be competitive, I think the german gp should have shut up his detractors and doubters.

BTW, been reading that spies and lorenzo have been pretty tight lately. Makes you wonder/hope that they team together next year. Be cool to see what spies can do on (for now) the best factory bike with a years experience on his side.

NOT too sure about that? not overseas for sure and probably not even here in the states? He won the title one year and i give him that BUT before and since then he has been below par to say the least which i think is the reason honda dropped him when they did (i'm not saying he sucks or anything but to say he's the 2nd most popular rider?), but then again it's kinda the same situation yamaha is going thru now BUT why would you let the goat go for any reason when you almost know for a fact that he WILL come back on another bike and whip your ass and probably take the title....ask honda about this. i'll just be glad when it's all said and done so we'll know what to look forward to and expect for next season.

Agreed. I hope he still has enough in him to do it. I'm not pessimistic, just being hopeful and not over confident.

Anyone here read Rossi's book?

Remember that he wants to have fun while racing, that's a big reason that he left honda.

I bet he'd have fun at Ducati and take less money to do it.
Plus he'd be that much closer to his Formula 1 ride for when he retires from bikes and tries for the F1 title to match John Surtees having won titles in each.
After he ties or surpasses Mike Hailwood's 8 GP titles of course.

He's already tied Surtee's 7 GP championships so he could go to F1 and tie that guy's record now if he could win.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
