Ducati Xerox Team 2009 WSB press kit




1) Introduction:

The Ducati Xerox Team looks forward to the 2009 World Superbike season with a new rider line-up. Following the retirement of Australian legend Troy Bayliss at the end of 2008, Ducati has signed a contract with experienced Japanese rider Noriyuki Haga, otherwise known as “Nitro Nori”. A long-term Yamaha rider, Noriyuki moves to Ducati hungry for a championship victory, having finished second or third in the standings for the last five years. He will partner Roman rider Michel Fabrizio who continues with the Ducati Xerox Team for a second consecutive season and both riders will fight to defend the World Superbike riders and manufacturers titles won by Bayliss and the Ducati Xerox Team in 2008.

A
renewed agreement with Xerox sees the continuation of their sponsorship of the Ducati factory team until 2011.
In 2008 the Ducati Xerox Team dominated proceedings from the start, with Troy Bayliss taking eleven race wins throughout the year to win the riders title in Magny-Cours (the thirteenth riders title for Ducati), finishing the season with an impressive 118-point advantage over second-placed rider Troy Corser. Ducati also snatched the manufacturers title, for the fifteenth time since the championship began in 1988. Michel Fabrizio, in his first year with the factory team, clocked up seven podium finishes to finish the season in eighth place in the rider classification.


The competition really heats up in 2009 with the entry of Aprilia and BMW into the Superbike category, as well as the arrival of many new talents from around the globe. Two highly experienced riders, Troy Corser and Ruben Xaus, will make up the new BMW outfit while Italian manufacturer Aprilia has signed Max Biaggi and former GP rider Shinya Nakano to their ranks. The Yamaha Motor Italia team has a whole new look for 2009 with the arrival of young British rider Tom Sykes who will partner three times AMA champion Ben Spies. Team Ten Kate Honda retains Carlos Checa and Ryuichi Kiyonari but adds a third rider to the grid in the form of 2008 Supersport vice-champion, Jonathan Rea. Suzuki Alstare Team is the only other team to retain two of its 2008 riders, Max Neukirchner and Yukio Kagayama, for the 2009 season while privateer outfit Celani Suzuki welcomes Karl Muggeridge on board.

The Ducati Sterilgarda Team replaces Xaus and Biaggi with the 2008 British Superbike champion Shane Byrne and young Italian Superstock rider Alex Polita, who both rode Ducati machines in 2008, while the new-look DFX team moves from Honda to Ducati machinery for 2009, bringing on board French rider Régis Laconi, another former Ducati rider. Another privateer Ducati team, Guandalini Racing, retain Jakub Smrz but also bring on board the 2008 Superstock 1000 champion with the Ducati Xerox Junior Team, Australian Brendan Roberts.
Kawasaki signs up with Paul Bird Motorsport to create a new factory team with experienced rider Makoto Tamada as well as 2008 Supersport rider Broc Parkes while the PSG-1 Corse squad remain in the paddock but as privateers with Ayrton Badovini and Matteo Biaocchi riding the Kawasaki. Team Pedercini Kawasaki will also take to the tracks, with Luca Scassa and David Salom on board ZX-10R machines. The Stiggy Honda outfit moves from the BSB to the World Superbike paddock, bringing British rider, and 2008 BSB vice-champion, Leon Haslam to line up alongside Roberto Rolfo, while another Honda squad, the privateer Pro-Bike Honda team, invites Gregorio Lavilla on board for 2009. New team Squadra Corse Italia will enter for the first time with Italian Vittorio Iannuzzo.
With the arrival of Aprilia and BMW and so many new and talented riders, the 2009 season is sure to be one of the most exciting yet.
