The IronMan and IronWoman Series will see Australia’s elite athletes compete in what is the most grueling ocean based competition on the planet....
Ducati will have a "Junior team" in 2013 MotoGP comprised of American Ben Spies and Andrea "Crazy Joe" Iannone.
It is expected that Spies and Iannone will receive essentially the same motorcycles as factory Ducati riders Nick Hayden and Andrea Dovisioso--at least initially.
This is a remarkable change for Ducati's MotoGP effort as prior to this most satellite Ducati MotoGP teams were referred to--internally--as "the spare parts teams". Motorcycles were not always, or not ever, depending on the team/rider, on the same level as the factory Ducati motoGP bikes.

Notice to mariners. Audi and Ducati have presented their offer to Valentino Rossi in recent days and now the 9-time champion is deciding what to do.
It 'a great deal - with guarantees precise - that no other house, if they wanted to, but can certainly argue, as was admitted by himself, at this point in his career, Smith is not looking for money. He wants to win again, to fight.
In recent months about the future of Valentino Rossi has been written about all this and more, imagining scenarios of science fiction, but as always the reality is the simplest one: the pilot of Tavullia has the chance to return to Yamaha. And that is why the Iwata house has frozen all negotiations with the two pilots who could climb the second motorcycle officer, Ben Spies and Andrea Dovizioso. A Cal Crutchlow has instead been given to understand that there is a bike for him, but in the Tech 3 team. And this is why the likeable British rider is looking for fresh air. Do not climb on the podium and do not get on the podium, you might as well earn two euros.
