Redding to BSB

Scott Redding to BSB for Be Wiser Ducati for 2019, I think this is a smart move for Scott and for Ducati. Scott has experience on the V4 motogp bike and the team is switching to the new V4 next season. I am sure they are hoping this will speed up development. What do you guys think?
Thanks from able duc

Very true but at least he knows it. In a recent interview he said he has almost no education and is "dumb as dog shit". You could tell from his social media (his IG is pure gold) that he was pretty scared about his future. I think this is a great move for him. Win the BSB championship, wild card in a few WSBK rounds. Go from there.

Couldn't agree more. Hopefully he can refocus get a good feeling for the bike and show that he has pace.

The only thing I would've enjoyed more would've been him on a V4 over here in Moto America. But with Yamaha pulling out I have to wonder if we'll even have a national series in the coming years. Obviously there's more interest and money in BSB.

Yamaha has cut their racing budget by 75 percent. They are moving the Moto America Superbike program in house with two bikes. They have parted ways with Graves. They will also no longer be running 600's as a factory supported program. Graves has been linked to a couple different manufactures for 2019, but nothing has been announced yet. Yamaha is also likely out of WSS etc as well and I think there may be some shakeup in the dirt world as Cooper Webb suddenly signed a KTM deal out of nowhere.

JD Beach posted on IG a pic of his stuff that he cleaned out of the Graves trailer, was kinda sad to really see it go down.
