Can you imagine if Ben doesn't win WSBK this season!!!
THAT WOULD SUCK.

I think that Ben although only 25 needs to continue upward with his learning curve. Moto GP is his logical choice ASAP.
As far as the 800 goes I'm sure he will do just fine.
It will be interesting to see his talents against the best riders in the world.
Rossi will hang around for 2011. He needs the money to pay off the Italian Government. :-)
As far as who he rides for in 2011. I believe Ducati could afford him. Is he up for that challenge? Ducati gets huge dollars from outside sponsors. What kind of money do you think Rossi would bring with him to Ducati?
HUGE AMOUNTS.
Either way we need elbows to sew up the championship first.

But I will say that is Spies shows that he can be a champ rather quickly, all bets are off. Then Yamaha may not do everything in its power to keep Rossi.

I also know that the way things are today, you can never say never, but I just don't see Rossi on a Ducati as something that is likely to occur.

I would bet more on him being in a Ferrari than on a ducati but I do think money wouldn't be an issue with either!

This is why I said there are rumors floating around about Valentino to Ducacti in 2011:

http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2009/R...Ducati+rumours

About 1:30 into this video, he talks about:

http://www.motogp.com/en/videos/2009...erfect+weekend

“I haven’t decided yet about my future, I will decide in the next year. I have a contract signed already with Yamaha (for 2010). For sure it is a great dream for everybody, to see Valentino with Ducati. We will see, I don’t know.”
