I was reading Superbike Planet's Sachsenring preview and they nonchalantly mentioned a couple personal moves which I hadn't heard about yet:

- Biaggi back to Camel-Honda
- Pedrosa to take Biaggi's place on Repsol-Honda
- Hopkins to Ducati

Anyone know if there's any truth to these?

I dunno, he might have some potential... but his personality sure does get on my nerves. I think he needs to go to ama or world superbike for a few years and get some experience/maturity.

Yeah, I heard about Pedrosa. But my guess is, the other Repsol spot has not been determined yet. It will either be Hayden or Biaggi, probably whoever finishes out the year better. Hopkins...its hard to tell. I would bet a lot of money that if KR Jr was on an RC211V he would be getting podiums. I would like to see Hopkins get on either the ducati or the ZXRR just to see if he has the stuff, so he can either make it or get sent to WSB/AMA. Being on that suzuki team is like limbo. Not good enough to compete for a podium, not as crappy as the old cube was!!

But his contract with Yamaha IS up after next year, so who knows where he'll end up?
He's gonna keep moving down the ladder just to prove he can do it again...maybe he'll be on the KTM powered Proton :shock: or the Blata :shock: :shock:

I'd love to see Rossi end up on a Ducati.
