Mladin To Ride WSBK BMW?

Seems our boy might not be so retired after all! That would be awesome.

The way Spies blitzed WSBK, I think Mladin would do pretty well. But he needs/deserves a factory ride! The factory supported BMW team was hardly competitive and from what was reported is behind electronics-wise. I'd hate to think what the satellite team has.

Its true the beemer didnt set the world on fire, but they did a great job for their first year racing with a brand new machine. Mladin is a great racer and no matter what ride he is on i think he will do great. the only major set back he will have is feedback, for the last decade he has been on a machine that has been worked on by a crew that knew exactly how to set it up at each track.

So if Mladin races in WSBK and losses all the time can he blame DMG for that?

i dont care if he blames YOU bloo. the fact is that he should do well, but if he doesnt its not because of a lack of skill, or lack of knowledge about a proper race bike, its just going to be new everything.

I don't care either...in fact because I know what an arse he is I will get pleasure watching him loose and crying about this and that....It will make watching the WSBK that much more fun for me so I hope he does.

i don't think he is ready to quit , but once he finds out that he should quit(mid-season) , he'll start doing worse.it's a new team and will have trouble setting him up.i noticed him slipp'n towards the end of this year.

lead,follow or get out of the way !

I think his late season 'slipp'n' was more a function that he already announced his retirement and didnt have the desire. I still think hes just yanking chains. i cant see him racing all over the world as he has been so adamant about not doing that with a young family, his age, etc etc etc.
