Yamaha racing

Yeah- wish Bonsey would get some 'at-a-boys from the US racing followers. Onward on subject:
The guy that may be the odd man out is Colin. I did hear that he may be looking for a Factory slot in AMA Superbike before he calls it quits. E Boz & Jason are up on contract. E Boz will likely re-sign and Yamaha, I believe, will sign him because they know that Boz can run upfront (at least for a while). The Factory should then offer the seat to Colin. Between Boz and Colin, Yamaha sees its best chance at a Superbike title in the AMA in years. Jason will go somewhere useful- like Corona Honda if Hodgeson doesn't sign. So, next season should be interesting: Factory AMA ride for Colin, E Boz searching for better grip & a title, Hodgeson back in AMA (I'd bet a modest sum on that one), Jordan Suzuki regularly on the podium, Spies being offered a WSB Suzuki seat, and Mladin's magic fading.... All just a guess, but if you look close enough it's entirely possible.

colin out

Too bad Colin will get fired....... Next stop WSBK, screw that AMA crap!
i like the guy and think the AMA could use this to their advantage. if hodgeson, edwards, davies and ellison all return next year it could be the most exiting year in the AMA in a decade. anyway, he's already won a WSB title. he'd like a AMA title. still make sense to me. if you read my "very early in the morning" post from yesterday you'll see that i was spot on in the spies prediction. GP sounds like a stretch for 08 but WSB should be an easy lock for Rizla or Allstare (sp?).
