Scoop: Haslam WSB Suzuki deal imminent

Leon's leaving Stiggy Honda for Suzuki in 2010

BRITISH ACE Leon Haslam is to announce he is to sign for Suzuki WSB in 2010, Visordown has been told.

The Stiggy Honda rider, who currently lies 6th in this year's World Superbike Championship, is due to announce the move at this weekend's Magny Cours meeting.

Earlier this week, Visordown exclusively broke the news that Haslam had refused to ride at the last round of the championship in Imola; the former BSB frontrunner has had ongoing pay problems with his employers.

Just a few days ago Stiggy Racing announced they were splitting with their financial partners, S2 Racing.
