    Reading now confirmed as in Ducati with BeWise Team for BSB. Gets a decent ride and hopefully decent results! Starts at Silverstone, so a small aid in getting used to the bike and then learning the circuits.

    You think he had much choice, after publicly slagging off his current GP team?

    Yeah, but the commute is less. Swings and round-a-bouts, innit.

    He did OK in the test and riding at this weekend's BSB round at Brands. He's a brave man as it will be a baptism of fire....

    Bradders gets the leccy ride

    Will get a few bob for that, and easily enough talent to win it. And a few races with KTM as a wildcard.

    Hopefully he might get another MotoGP ride. But the current trend is to bring up anybody who shows proper potential, which is good. But as an older rider, he'll be behind Bradl and Bautista, who have slightly out performed him.
