From the GSX-R to the RR

Leon Haslam has been officially released from his contract with Alstare Suzuki due to financial problems facing the team.

Deep pocketed BMW seized the opportunity, and Haslem will be taking Ruben Xaus place riding alongside Troy Corser in the BMW Motorrad team for the 2011 season.

I believe this a great move by BMW, as they need a young rider with great stamina and determination like Haslem next to Corser their experienced rider.
