and elias has been confirmed as the 2nd d'antin rider

This just in from

TONI ELIAS TO RIDE THE DUCATI OF THE PRAMAC-DANTIN TEAM NEXT SEASON.

The Pramac-Dantin Team and Toni Elias have reached an agreement that sees both parties committed to working together next year.

The young pilot of 24 years, native of Manresa, already has nine years of experience racing in the World Championship, and for the 2008 season he will ride a Ducati GP8 for the Pramac-Dantin Team.

Toni Elias began his professional career in 1998 racing a 125cc in the Spanish Championship, and after only one year jumped directly to the mecca of motorcycling, the MotoGP World Championship. During his three years in the eighth liter class, Elias obtained several victories and pole-positions, demonstrating that despite his youth he was able to fight with the best riders of that day. From 2002, when he moved up into the 250cc category, he proved himself to be a very fast and consistent rider, competing in the top group from his very first season. In his three years riding 250's, he was able to fight for the Championship and achieved 20 podiums. In 2005 Elias took his first steps in the MotoGP class, thus far notching 3 podiums and a breathtaking, breakthrough win in 2006 at the Gran Prix of Portugal.

The Pramac-Dantin Team will charge into 2008 with two young, fierce, and competitive pilots: TONI ELIAS and SYLVAIN GUINTOLI.

Oh snap! I'm glad he stopped becoming the human wrecking ball he was at the beginning of the season. But who's stopping that now? With the incredible launch control, squirt and speed of the Ducati... it's a recipe for disaster. But I see him struggling, because much like Capirex, Elias is a point and shoot kind of rider. The Ducati isn't made for that.
