    What’s up with nobody picking up the Yamaha team? It looks like they’ve got a proven product, so what the heck is behind everyone turning their back to them?

    Yamaha is blowing it with the decision to end their team and support for next year. They need to remember the old saying “Race on Sunday, sale on Monday” and find a way to at least help support a privateer team similar to what Ducati has done. It certainly has worked out for Ducati this year.

    They’re sure successful in WSB compared to GP. That steel frame sure seemed to handle the bumps well. 1st race was a chance to see Biaggi work thru the field. Watching Checa stalk another Duc. Good season.
