I'm sure she wants to roadrace for a career and ulrich has a history of helping promising young roadracers out, so who can blame her? Good for her.

Unlike past few years, Kawi does not pay contingency at the club racing level

for the 2010 season.

Zero $.

Same for Yamaha.

Yup, you're half right. I spoke to her at Daytona before the 200 and asked her "Why after all your time on a Kawi did you switch to a zuke?" And she flat out told me that Kawi had informed her that they dissolved her contract and did NOT tell her or explain why. Since everyone knew she was to go pro this year, Suzuki and J. Ulrich approached her first and asked if she would ride for zuke, eventhough she never rode one. Of course she accepted (anyone would accept a factory ride, whether it be a stinkin' honda or otherwise). She only picked a zuke cuz they simply asked her first. She also told me that she wasnt too happy with the way Kawi treated her so she doubts she would ever return to riding a Kawi as a pro. Damn we let a good one get away! Nice going Kawi.

Hey, if it's bad for Men racing, it's even worse for women. I hope Kawasaki gets back in the game when it comes to racing. It seems like all these "cuts" had better produce the greatest ZX10R the world has ever seen.
