Got the speed and the cash... Monster Energy Yamaha will end the season with more points than one of the factory teams - any takers?

Cheers to Mark Hall and his stout support of bike racing!!

How'd Ben Spies look on the satellite Yamaha now - Monster would love to have him too, I bet... Colin or James (points loser) swapped for Spies in '10?

Interesting...I wonder if they're look will change much. It seems Monster liked Colin's Performance in Practice. He sure made Tos-pot look like a fool. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img] Maybe Toesland will do better today...

My respect for Colin grows everyday.

This deal isn't possible without his preseason testing results. I'm sure Herve is paying Colin a hefty bonus for landing this deal, but the mess at Tech 3 is regrettable.

Obviously, James is the more marketable of the two. You can't help but think that a big part of the crew chief changes was geared towards improving James performance and helping the team land a major sponsor.

Oddly enough, it is a rejuvenated Edwards who has certainly landed this contract for Herve.

Wouldn't it be nice to have Edwards up the front repeating some of his old SBK form! I still reckon the old Edwards/Baylis era of SBK was magic .... can't remember the year but I think the track was imola ..... that was Edwards at the best!

Ok I guess he seems mellowed with age though

No I bet Edwards is laughing at how that turned out! ..... and given his comments on "karma" and Hayden ..... I bet he will be "hard to live with" if your name starts with a "J" and ends with "ames Toseland " [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Don't know whats happening with Toseland though .... yeah I now he's injured ATM .... but I think he's "not in his element" in MGP. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img]
