Well I thought i'd bite the bullet and post my first debate. and the post below in the 'Will Hayden win for Ducati?' got me asking.

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE <div class='quotemain'>"Will Hayden ever win a race for Ducati?"

Yes.

Yes in 2012 he will win win the WSBK championship for them.

In MotoGP 2009. No he won't win a race for Ducati.

Moderators, I wasn't sure if this should be in the WSBK forum but seeing as both are current MotoGP riders I thought it ok?

Ok, a lot of 'if's' here I admit. But say Stoner carries on being championship material for a good few years with Ducati, and Hayden doing whatever he does (be it winning championships, races, consistent podium finisher and good team guy or a Melandri...i'm hoping for race wins [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] ) and if Haga does the same thing (either wins WSBK on the Ducati in '09 or 2010 and retires, or doesnt get on with it and retires etc) can anyone see Stoner or Hayden being moved to WSBK by Ducati and becoming the next Troy Bayliss? By this I mean a rider who pretty much dominates on a Ducati and stays with them their entire WSBK carrer?
I don't like to look too far into the future but think its unlikely to be Stoner with his GP breeding and performance on the Duke so far as he is liekly to be in GP for a good while yet, but if Hayden is with the team say 3-5 years (and i'm not making any assumptions yet) with either a great or average period with would he fit in well on a Ducati superbike?

Again this is all VERY speculative and as a Hayden fan I hope he has many successful years still in MotoGP with Ducati but i'd be interested on the view of the more knowledgeable forum members.
<u>Finally. #41, Pinky or whomever you are, if you start writing shit on here about how Nicky Hayden didn't deserve the 2006 championship I will ask the moderators to remove the thread. Its my post so my rules!!!!</u>

Seriously I would have to say NO.

I cannot imagine that either Casey or Nicki would want to be in WSBK, it is a step backwards, that is why WSBK champs like Toseland, Edwards and once upon a time Bayliss took the step up.

Bayliss was pragmatic and took the step back but until they are forced James and Colin will stay put. Nicki has shown he can ride in a SBK series (AMA) and in motogp as well with the ’06 title, Casey however is an apprentice of the European school – up through 125’s, 250’s and then the premier class. Apart from his early years of flat track he really has no business in WSBK especially given his success (16 wins in the last two seasons) and the title in ’07 on the 800's.

Right now Ducati has a rider who I think to be the most talented Japanese rider on board (Haga) and there are SBK guys waiting in the wings everywhere. The guys from the U.S will talk (type) your ears off pumping Ben Spies numbers up, and I think rightfully so, in addition there are guys in the BSB and Aussie guys (who have an awesome record in this type of competition) like Glenn Allerton, the Stauffer brothers (Jamie and Dan), Jason O’Halloran and so and so forth that would be looking for the call up.

I think Ducati will put their eggs in other baskets so to speak

I agree with andy [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] I dont think hayden or stoner would want to go to wsbk in the first place, or that ducati wants either one of them there. if one of them is more likely to go, its hayden, and if he goes he probably will do very good in wsbk.

hayden will have to make a move in wsbk very soon because his time in MotoGP is limited. he had to much fantastic chances and in return he delivered practically nothing. so ih he want to save his career wsbk is only option for him.

i seem to remember that he signed a contract with ducati for one year on a moto gp bike right?
so why is he going to be in WSBK soon then? someone who has a lot more insight into rider talent seems to think he is worth hiring and they were the people who hired stoner too remember.

he will be failure at ducati, that's clear after first test. so, what after that? suzuki? kwak? more shameful seasons? or move in wsbk where he could be a real contender?
