Marco Melandri: No WSBK for me

Marco Melandri looks to have backed away from a possible return to the World Superbike Championship with MV Agusta

Marco Melandri looks to have backed away from a possible return to the World Superbike Championship with MV Agusta. 

The Italian, who left Aprilia halfway through a disastrous return to MotoGP last season, had been called up as a test rider for the new MV Agusta-Forward Racing project. 

However this morning Melandri tweeted he wouldn't be taking part in the project and played down returning to WSBK in 2016.

'No WSBK for me. Thanks to the people try to make it work, but there is not the right way to do it good, so i don't mean to be just a number,' he said.

Leon Camier, who will compete on the MV Agusta in 2016, has taken up testing duties at the two-day Jerez test on the 26-27 January. 

Melandri has won five races in MotoGP and 19 in WSBK. He has also been a title runner up in both categories.
