So, wait - who is replacing Fabrizio now? Man, it would be awesome to see either Barros or Biaggi ride in GPs again. Barros deserves it, whereas Biaggi would bring pure drama to the entire scene - I love GP drama!
On a side note:
What I don't understand is why Kawasaki chose Randy de Puniet over Olivier Jacque, Max Biaggi, and a plethora of other qualified riders.
I'm sorry, but choosing RdP over others was Kawasaki's biggest mistake ever. That kid needs way more experience in 250s before they shipped him off to GPs.
All he does is crash or place very low. Just look at the other rookies, the do MUCH better than him at this point. I mean, I don't remember him doing that well in 250s either. Mainly, I remember Dani winning a lot with Casey RIGHT behind him. And when Dani wasn't winning, Casey was. Where was RdP during all of this? - in the gravel, methinks.
It would've been nice to keep the original rider, Alex Hofmann, too. Now the Hoffmeister got "demoted" to that awful D'Antin Ducati squad with the older versions of the Desmosedici. That team is like a virtual GP graveyard where riders go to effectively end their GP careers. Xaux and Hodgson were there for 1 year before they left. If he leaves, who will Hopper have to talk to? What a sad future...
Are you guys in agreement or am I alone on this one (ie Randy de Puniet sucking)?
