Get the latest gossip from the World Superbike paddock
The latest news circling the paddock right now is that Alex Barros is going to replace the unlucky Spaniard on the Honda Fireblade at Vent Axia.
Trusted sources say the Brazilian will ride with the team for the remainder of the season.
We'd love to see the former MotoGP, WSB and 500GP man out there again. He just might be able to really take the scrap to Checa.
We'll let you know the second we hear anything more concrete on this.

it seems to me that whilst i admire Paul Bird for putting up his own dosh season after season, and taking it to em as a privatere
i dont however like the way he treats his riders at times
but fair play to the bloke

I would have thought he would have a contract to the end of the season anyway. So maybe not a man at all, just obliged.
I'm surprised he's lasted this long myself. He's not had a good season has he?

For the above read
Nicky Hayden at Honda, Marco Melandri at Ducati, Antony West at Kawasaki in MotoGP.
Colin Wright wasn't particulalrly "nice" to James Haydon was he, when he unceremoniously dumped him in favour of Lavilla 5 years ago and Lavilla wasn't very vocal about not replacing Haydon in the Airwaves team either
It's the politics of bike racing, someone is always waiting to take your ride.

Ha Ha, Paul Bird was bemoaning the fact that he bought hondas when he should have bought Ducatis the other week.
Although we appreciate Bird contribution to racing by putting his own money into it (and fucks knows he likes telling everyone about it) he does moan like a fooking drain.
Either keep the faith or fook off to rallying you fart.
