    I would like to see Dani P have a go on that Zuk. Obviously he's contracted thru next year so I will have to wait and see... I think Marc and his super aggressive style has developed a bike that is just too stiff for little Dani. Dani was a lot more consistent before Marc arrived. And of course Honda is doing the right thing by following their fastest rider.. Dani is just too small to get the bike to generate grip like Marc and Cal and they both brake harder so that is how the machine is setup to work optimally

    According to paddock rumour, the riders most at risk of losing their seats are Rabat, Lowes, Redding, Baz, Barbera, & Abraham.

    Most of those riders could probably save their sides with a big result or two, but I think Rabat is as good as gone from MVDS.
