The Tech 3 Yamaha MotoGP team has made it clear they want the WSB series leader for next year, and has the lure of a works Yamaha M1 on Michelins as its main draw and most likely Colin Edwards as team- mate. MCN understands the Dunlop sponsorship deal the team currently has as its primary source of funding will not be renewed, and the team will swap to Michelin.
In response, Honda is understood to have put together an unprecedented package to keep Toseland in WSB for another year

I Ride: Has pedals
He wont get the same bike as Rossi, maybe the same tyres as Michelin have less bikes to deal with, but I doubt even they would be the same. Still it's a pretty good offer. If the honda 'works' ride for 09 turns out to be what Melandri 07 deal was, he's better off staying in Superbikes.

It's a pretty good deal without all the pressure of being directly on the factory team. He should be able to hang with Edwards by mid year.

Guess that means Lorenzo and Vale will share a garage. Cool.

'According to MCN' aka Toseland Dick Suckers... According to them he was signed by Suzuki as soon as Hopper left .. Oh and the self righteous WSBK Champ wont go to GP for anything less than a factory ride... Pffft, he's never gonna be in GP's...

Ant, would you care to place a bet on that? I bet you he will be in GP's next year. If you lose, you have to write "James Toseland is better than Anthony West" in your signature for two races afterwards. If I lose, you choose what I have to write. Deal?

If Toseland and West are both in GP's next year, I can guarantee Ant will beat him on a regular basis, Toseland is overrated something SHOCKING.. its simple, he wont cut it on competetive machinery, let alone with a satellite team.. hes just another pom whos delusions of granduer are much greater than his abilities [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

Not heard anyting about Pedrosa yet but i would be fairly sure he is staying. I have also heard that Dovi is leaving Honda for Dantin Ducati, which is interesting!

Yeah, if he is serious about motogp he should take what he can get. If he stays in superbikes much longer he may as well never come over.

I wouldn't be willing to Guarantee anythingm, he may take to it better than you (or I) think he will. I also wouldn't say he was that overrated, he is good for sure (but i think CV is better) and i think us Poms are just very keen to talk about him because we finally have someone to get excited about.

I think if i was Honda i would give Johnny Rea a motogp ride over JT, but JT should definitely be looking to give it a shot with or without Honda.

REA may go to ROBERTS (put him in the shop window) if they can keep Honda engines
