Sweet. Good call. He's been riding well this year - Top 10 every race except Italy.
For a first outing for KTM - that is a top team.

Hopefully Bradley is back on track now. Tough first half of the season for him!

I would rather it his brother. When Jorge finishes (on top) with Ducati, then KTM can have him. Sky racing are on KTM's, hell Rossi should climb aboard, he's already cutting them a big fat check every year. As far a Smith goes, I've already given up on him being a contender along with Crutchlow. KTM should have grabbed Maverick when and if they had the chance. He rides like the old young one's did when they came up minus all that crashing they did.

I would rather see Maverick Vinales on KTM or Iannone. Iannone is causing lot of troubles this season, but he knows how to ride fast. When he gain more experience and cool down a little bit, he should be very competitive on the right bike. Suzuki made good decision taking him on board.
I can't see Rossi changing team again and keep racing. He is chasing his last title and if he manage to do this in two years contract with Yamaha, he will step back I think and maybe run his own team?
