McCoy and Hopkins will be where next year???

i don't know if you all noticed, but it appears that red bull yamaha would be leasing their grid spaces next year to another team, since red bull is going to ktm.

with a pretty talented staff of riders, where would they go?

roadracing world is saying that hopkins is at suzuki and mccoy, well that's the bombshell (if you're an eboz fan), kawasaki!!!

Yep, McCoy has gone Green!!!
Its been a strange year for the Red Bull team.
McCoy has spent more time off the bike than on, and Hopkins has gone backwards.
I think the 2 stroke Yamaha was the worst bike in the paddock this year, and the Dunlops were also the worst tyre.
No wonder the sponsors want out
( Personally I think they should have kept Nori on the bike)

i think nori is too on the edge of the tire for a 500. if he could try to slow down mid-corner, he may have done better. he reminds me of abe when he was first starting out, before kenny sr. got him to slow down a little bit mid-corner and use the tires more effectively. it's such a rare talent to do what they could do. but there are times when it's a good idea, and times to slow it down a wee bit. go for drive, make it up on the top end.

hopkins (if ever on the right equipment) could actually do good things.

and i like mccoy. i like his style and i hope team green paid him some big green. he's a deserving guy.
