Toni Elias who spent most of his time at the tail end of the grid racing a Honda which was winning in the hands of Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa regularly has been axed from the LCR Team. The team has thanked him for his services. Who will take his place is yet unknown but the contenders seem to be Stefan Bradl and Randy De Puniet who is out of Pramac Ducati. Pramac Ducati will only field one Ducati next year and has signed Hector Barbera who is out of team Aspar who will be fielding CRT machines with Aprilia engines in all probability. Stefan Bradl it was announced mid season would remain in Moto2 but the death of Marco Simoncelli has left one factory Honda open. Honda could give that to either LCR or Gresini and it has requested LCR to allow Bradl to test the Honda 800cc for the test at Valencia, raising rumours of his going to LCR. Gresini is testing Andrea Iannone and remains to be seen what course of action it will take. One rider without a ride now is Randy De Puniet. The coming days should unravel a few things.
