this is a very competitive class, it takes a talented rider to get into the top 10... take Dovi away from Ducati and where would the GP18 be this year? lets be honest, KTM does not have an alien, they dont even have a top 10 rider, an agreement can be made that KTM's best rider is Mika Kallio.
Might be my memory but i thought they bought Vale to improve the bike and get some wins because they weren't competitive. I guess that may have been that they just couldn't beat honda.He was a known quantity and Yamaha we’re at the pointy end.
Yes he is! It would have been really uncomfortable to have Zarco as team mate.MM is real happy.
Suzuki would have been the best "challenge" opportunity for him in case he was not attracted to Honda's safety.Zarco should have headed straight to Suzuki.
