Thumbs up Rossi: I could race in Superbikes with Ducati

"In a few years, I could even race in Superbikes with Ducati" - Valentino Rossi.

What do we think about this prospect?

All the motoGP has-beens move into Superbikes don't they

But seriously - Superbikes really does look like a home for ex-motoGP riders... Checa, Biaggi, Melandri..... Shows up the difference between genuine GP riders and average Superbike chaps???

Good point

But unique circumstances? Last race of the season, Rossi on his a**e, Hayden cruising to the title. Not the most competitive season either - Hayden picking up the title through consistency more than anything??

Not knocking what Bayliss did that day though, it was a great ride

I just think, looking at the front of the SBK field today, Checa and Max are a class apart.

I've been waiting for this comment from Rossi ever since his mate Max won the championship last year.

I didn't think Haslam did that badly last year against all the ex-GP guys & could have probably done a lot more with decent support from the factory.

Martin, you make a fair point. The championship was done and dusted by the time, so maybe TB was the only rider really trying

Carlos did make the rest of them look silly last time out.
