Hey everyone,

Got some good goss!! (at least i think so)

Two great Aussie riders Chris Vermeulen and Josh Brookes will be riding in the Suzuka 8 Hour in Japan this Sunday! Thats exciting

And the other latest is that Chris Vermeulen will be joing the Moto GP paddock next year Unreal, (although i don't know which team he is joining yet)

it's going to be exciting to see if Honda can put another one in the win column.
They have a pretty impressive string of Suzuka wins.

20 wins is very impressive, especially when you're nearest competition only has 4 or 5. Has it been announced officially Vermeulen will go to MotoGP next year? If so, will he be with HRC or joining a new team?

Vermeulen is my fav in world Superbike. After that performance on one of the last races if not THE last race where he crashed and got a ride back to his backup bike before the start (thanks to Giovanni Bussei - what a class act he is for that!) and started last but made it o finish 6th or 7th... how could anyone not love this kid. I see a bright future for him in MotoGP. It'll be tough going against the other young guns like hopper, hayden, and pedrosa, but he'sll definately do wel on the right equipment.

I hope they take the 8 hours race! Good luck to them, i'll be checking the net for updates and coverage, as the US Sucks! lol

Ooost - that sig quote kicks ass! im gonna have to borrow it for another forum! lol

Thanks General, it was in one of the interviews of Nicky in a magazine posted at his website. Does anyone get much coverage of the 8 hour? I would sure like to. I also wish there were more GP competitors still doing it. Does anyone recall in 2003 when Nicky Hayden and Ryuchi Kiyonari were the Seven Stars Honda SP-2 team? Hayden was fastest all weekend and Kiyo was third and first lap of the race someone sprung a leak and Nicky went down in a puddle of oil. I would certainly love to have an 8 hour win on my resume.

I remember that. They were favored to win and a few other people went down in that oil spot too if i remember correctly. There were highlights last year on speedtv, but it was on another speed news show, not like a dedicated one for the race. It showed them switching riders and stuff, was pretty cool for sure.
