Rossi Stays, Biaggi Goes!

Rossi will continue to race for Yamaha's MotoGP team riding the Yamaha YZR-M1 in the 2006 MotoGP World Championship.

Rossi: "I am so happy to be able to announce the continuation of my relationship with Yamaha. Last year was magic, to win my first race with Yamaha, and then to win the championship. I have a fantastic relationship with this factory and my team crew, who have worked so hard to make the M1 as competitive as it is now, and it just made sense to stay with Yamaha for another year".

"Our sources" also tell us that Repsol-Honda will not renew Max Biaggi's contract for 2006, and that the aging "Cesar" is in negotiations with Ducati. (same sources that 2 weeks ago told me about the same option for Rossi, so don't hold it against me if it doesn't happen)
