Despite some indications that the 41 year old Max Biaggi might replace the injured Ben Spies on the Pramac Ducati it seems that the replacement will be the Ducati test driver Michele Pirro. Although Biaggi did get the chance to test the Ducati, he has said that he has no intention of returning to motorsport. No doubt there will be a few disjointed fans of four times 250cc world champion who mainly rode for Honda though spent one season with Ducati in World Superbikes. The latest news on Ben Spies is that his shoulder injury is getting better, but he will almost certainly miss the Catalunya GP on 16th June.
It seems that as far as betting on the 2013 MotoGP champion it is a two or possible three horse race. There is little to choose in terms of betting odds between Dani Pedrosa who is priced at 13/10 to win the title and Jorge Lorenzo who is priced at 7/5, though odds on Marc Marquez of 9/2 are significantly longer. Go any further down the standings and the odds become very long indeed; for instance currently Valentino Rossi is priced at 66/1 and Cal Crutchlow is priced at 150/1. In many ways a bet on Crutchlow is quite tempting, and he is certainly a rider to watch in the future; expect some more podium finishes later this season.
