Don't get your hopes up. Chris Vermin sucks and so does Sykes. When Melandri can finish top 10 several times on a privateer Moto GP Kawi, there's obviously nothing wrong with the equipment. They need a rider and a good tech.

There's always hope, people, always. Sykes knows he's got his work cut out for him, so we'll see...

Tom just never came to terms with the crossplane R1. He has shown that he has ability, running well on the Rizla BSB GSXR back in '08 even dicing with some of the factory WSBK guys when they ran in the UK. Hopefully he comes to grips with the ZX10R and maybe he can get some results.

So is it going to be a 3 rider team, with Parkes, Sykes, and Verm? Kawasaki is putting some investment into racing. Hopefully it turns into some podiums, although I'm not holding my breath.

Well Parkes should not be there, in my opinion. I'm at least hoping for both riders to place in the top 10 next season.

hell jamie hacking did better his wildcard ride than any one else.he even bumped parks off the track.
True and not true, he was fast at Miller, but very eratic, he was taking way more chances than anybody out there, trying to impress. The next two wild card rides he was way slow and at the back of the pack. Shez impressed me more with his wild card rides this year.

I would have thought they would have promoted Joan Lascorz, he is a better rider than any of the others IMHO. I like his aggressive style, and he works the shite out of the bike.
