Can he win all three? Not bloody likely.

Reasons Hudgson will have a hard time making it on the podium; he will be racing on tracks he has never seen before, the 999 will be shod with DunlopÂ’s and not the Michelins he used to win WSB, Matt Mladin.

Hodgson is a nice guy and a helluva rider, but Ducati Austin already had a crap season with one of those. Here's hoping that Corse gets their bike in order (watch those rocks at Daytona!) and some stickier Michelins (or Dunlops) spooned on so we can see Boss and Hodgson on the box next year. I'm no Ducati *****, but anything that makes Superbike a deeper and more competitive field is welcome. Bring it on Neil!!!

Hodgson's coming to America? Hooray! Anything that keeps AMA roadracing interesting, and afloat, is a good idea in my book. Last season looked, more or less, like the Honda Cavalcade of TheyÂ’ve got it all sewn up, so why bother anyway. Hodgson, on his Ducati, got flogged pretty good, in MotoGp last season. But, considering that DucatiÂ’s main competition was the combined industrial might of Honda and Yamaha, there wasnÂ’t much he could do other than take his beating. Thought I canÂ’t say that IÂ’ll be sporting Ducati Red, while sitting in front of my TV, Hodgson can do nothing but improve things over here. Last yearÂ’s AMA season was abysmal and itÂ’s future looked dismal, and neither was a lot more interesting than my poetry. So, letÂ’s hear it for AMA RoadRacingÂ…Come to thing of it, donÂ’t bother, the boys at the AMA are probably bludgeoning themselves in self-congratulation already. After all, thatÂ’s what they seem to do best.

Default Corse this is good.

05 looks like it may be worthwhile in AMA and World Superbike. MotoGP, well at least I'll be following it . As far as Neil, the 03 World Superbike Champion joining Eric on the Duc over here... TOO BLOODY COOL!!!

Just wondering out loud but if Neil and Eric on the same team, what are the odds on the main team accent. Will Neil start saying y'all, and eating grits? Or will Eric start saying Bollock you all, and drinking warm beer?

And the Italian influence could have them on a serious pasta diet, and talking with their hands.

Wasn't EBoz running Michelins last season? I believe he was.

Eric Bostrom is from Southern California. You may have him confused with one of the Hayden brothers.

It's plausible that Ducati might switch to Dunlops in AMA for 2005. They were less than stellar with the Michelins last year, especially getting rear traction while leaned over (re: Eric's highside). It's kinda hard to see Ducati splitting with Michelin, but results speak for themselves and Dunlops are obviously the shizznizzle in AMA.
