Joe Roberts officially announced his move to the ItalTrans Moto2 team today.

American Racing says they will have an exciting announcement later today.

Whoa, Vale tests positive for Covid!

Get better soon #46. I hope that this is isolated and we don't see spreading to other riders and/or calling early end to the season.

Rossi tests positive for COVID-19. Will miss both races at Aragon.

Monster Energy Yamaha will have to put someone on Rossi's bike for the second Aragon race if he can't be there.

Lets see who's under contract to Yamaha, already in Europe and has experience at Aragon? Lorenzo? Razgatioglu? Locatelli? Gerloff? van der Mark had his shot.

Hey, Chaz Davies is going to be out of contract after this weekend. Hmmm.

I'll just keep junking up this thread with my posts.

RoadracingWorld is reporting Beaubier to Moto2 with American Racing on a two-year deal. The post says Dorna is involved in the negotiations. Interesting.

Two fucking thumbs up to Cameron Beaubier for jumping into the meat grinder class.

Total bummer for Vale

Wonder if others in the garage have it?

Great news for Cam. Good on him.
From the article sounds like the timing is right that he can replace Mav.

I would like to see Davies get a good seat somewhere. He really likes the U.S. and said he would like to live in California but I'm not sure if MotoAmerica is the right place for him. JD Beach would be a good candidate for the Attack Yamaha Superbike ride.

Chaz spends so much time in Socal but I think he knows there's nothing good to come from racing in MA.

I'm inferring that Wasserman's involvement seems to acknowledge that Dorna finally sees a viable USA marketshare and they're trying to correct the error of their ways. At this point, we're nearly a virgin market to GP moto racing without a viable domestic series. I'm curious how they're going to market it.
