    Has nothing to do with the lack of current American talent, only his lack of world class talent. Alex is starting to shine and I bet someone could pull some strings to get him that seat if he remains consistent over the next two months.

    Beaubier spoke the truth earlier this year. Unless WSBK or GP is paying him the same money, it's not worth anyone going overseas. Only American talent to go overseas nowadays would have to be extremely young and that's before they start making money here. PJ is the last thing we have over there and he might be gone soon with the MV turd bucket

    Petrucci says;
    "Pramac gave me the biggest step in my career, the biggest help, so I really wanted to stay with them again. Aprilia made me a very good offer, I would like to thank them, but I prefer now to have a very competitive bike and a competitive team."

    Lowes has to know that Aprilia is out of bikes for him to crash.

    That was a smart move by Petrucci IMO. The Ducati seems to be improving and his results have been very good (slightly better than Lorenzo's). He clearly gels well with the bike. Who knows, Jorge may say no mas and run back to Yamaha in 2019, If he keeps his results he has set himself up well for the second factory bike.

    Meanwhile Aprilia will likely continue to struggle if they stay in the series at all.

    Shows that riders will do anything to stay in the MotoGp paddock. Once out you'll never get back. Ask Chaz
