He's riding for Repsol Honda with Rossi. To say the least, it's a promotion for Nicky and a bummer for Ukawa.

Default Woo hoo!

Hopefully we'll see an American on the podium next year. Nicky has the talent and work ethic, let's hope he makes the transition well.

That is what was reported earlier, but this seems to be the newest info and says that the team is not yet decided. Guess we'll have to wait a bit to know for certain.

Looks like GP might be the race to watch next year -- with Kato coming on strong (if it stays dry), Yamaha (and hopefully Suzuki) becoming competetive with the Hondas, Ducati and Kawasaki in there (hopefully they will have a better learning curve than Suzuki this year).



I wonder if Yamaha are now sorry they let Biaggi get away, not that they lost out on Nicky.

Default Go Nicky!!!!!!!!

Nicky in GP...



...and Ben Bostrom back in the states and back on a Honda. What's up with that? I know Ben has not had a stellar year, but 5th in points is not bad. But hey, if he got a great contract ($$$$) and doesn't have to be in Europe getting ran over by boats, what the hey, why not.



What I really want to know is where is Eric Bostrom going? Anyone know?



This silly season stuff is almost as fun as watching them race!

First I have nothing but respect for Nicky and his riding ability, he is good to the fans, and he has good work ethic, but i do not see him being competitive any time soon. AMA superbike is not even on the same planet as moto GP. All new tracks, new bike, new crew, and the little things like trying to order dinner in a different language are going to be to much. He should spend at least one year in 250 GP and learn the tracks and countries with less pressure, and then move on to the top class.
