There is rumors going around that Chris Vermeulen may be headed back to WSBK to take Troy Bayliss seat at Xerox Ducati. Id like to see CV stay in Motogp, but i guess a factory Ducati ride must be tempting. What are peoples thoughts on this..

I thought CV had discounted it ...... has it been touted further?

If it's true it'll be sad to see him go - but I think in real terms the suzuki can't win motoGP but the ducati can win WSBK, and will win it this year.
I think CV deserves a ride on a honda or yamaha to see how good he is but it's not going to happen.
What is it with Aussies and ducati anyway?

I'd rather see him take Marcos place out of everyone else. Like that will happen.

I think Chris will stay a Suzuki.

I wudnt want to see him leave moto gp especially after his performance seems to be on the up, but in the same breath it would be nice to see him move to WSBK and win a few championships.

Like Hopper, Vermeulen has shown on numerous occasions that he has world class speed. I think it would be a tragedy for him to stay with Suzuki. That team hasn't delivered the goods since the 2-stroke era.

I hope he takes a payday and moves to Xerox.

CV deserves to stay in MGP, even though I believe we have not yet seen the best of him in his three years so far (I generally say give them three years and judge).

Now, just to throw a curve ball a little bit.

Rumours are around (only in forums, cannot find articles) that Alberto Puig seems to have an 'unhealthy' influence at HRC/Repsol and has allegedly made some form of effort to veto Dovioso becoming the Repsol #2. Is it possible that HRC may take on CV?
