Visordown's source reveals AMA Superbike champ and WSB frontrunner to partner Colin Edwards in MotoGP
THE HOTTEST rumour doing the rounds at the moment concerns two of the hottest riders in the WSBK series.
Ben Spies, our sources tell us, has already inked the deal to join Colin Edwards at the Tech 3 MotoGP squad for 2010. This frees up his seat with the Belgarda Yamaha WSBK team; British ace Cal Crutchlow is the hot rumour to take Spies' ride.
Spies has been a revelation this year and it would be short-sighted of Yamaha to curb this confidence by clipping his wings and making him stay in WSBK for another season. The same applies to Crutchlow who has been on fire since the season opener.
Looks like another interesting season on the World stage…

3 websites have 3 different takes on this story - none of it is definite yet though....
Wouldn't surprise me to see JT back in WSB next year, but there is talk of this privateer team entering moto gp and using Yamaha engines next year, wouldn't surprise me if JT was their rider given that he already knows the Yam GP engine.
