Last minute decision sees WSS champ partner Melandri
BEN Spies will not be moving to BMW in World Superbikes but BMW didn't hang around, signing 25-year old current World Supersports champion Chaz Davies.
When Spies handed in his notice at Yamaha, we heard stories from different sources that he was heading to BMW World Superbike to race an S1000RR. Spies signed a letter of intent with the German manufacturer, but has decided to stay in MotoGP.
Last month we heard that BMW were talking to five riders: Melandri, Haslam, Spies, Davies and Guintoli.
Spies looks set to sign with a satellite Ducati team in MotoGP.

Interesting move! Heard on the grapevine that BMW made Haslam an offer too, but that he declined as he didn't want to be in the same team as Melandri... Whether that offer was made before or after they got in touch with Davies is another question!
Haslam to Ten Kate, or will he be going somewhere else?
