Zemke will be next. Some Honda outfit will take him on.

Iam trying to think of a supersport team that is Honda and cn only come up with Ten-kate? I know stiggys done.

Althea and Squadra both are Honda supported. Althea (sp?) has better resources, however.

Toche, thanks are there seats on those teams that are still available?

acecycleins 01-04-2010 12:58 PM

not quite sure if available is the correct word. those guys work for peanuts compared to what erion paid jake last season, but if he takes a pay cut (like RL did) then any one of those guys would lose out to a much better rider. all of it's mute if Jordan manages to sign Jake before Feb. we'll know for sure in 3 weeks.

Better rider being the AMA guys or the World riders? And whats the deal with Jake Holden what bearing does he hold with Jordon? Enlighten me please.

Not Holden. Zemke. Sorry for that if I misled. As far as talent. I'd say that there are easily 8 guys in AMA Superbike that could hang tough with the top eight WSBK guys given the right team and machines. RL has his work cut out for him. He should do better than Scasa did, however. But look for him in the top 7 most weekends after race 3 or 4.

Ah, understand now. Yes I think a handful of AMA guys could hang with the World riders. It'll be interesting to see Roger make his move up the podium latter. Only thing I keep thinking in the back of my mind is what the Heck is the AMA grid going to look like. Pathetic Iam thinking.
