The beleaguered Lucio Cecchinello Racing (LCR) Honda Team will be giving a one off wild card ride to Ben Bostrom, the 37 year old AMA Superbike Champion at the upcoming MotoGP race this weekend at Laguna Seca in Monterrey, California, USA.  The team’s regular rider Toni Elias is usually dead last in races and LCR is giving his second motorcycle to Ben Bostrom to boost the numbers on the grid.  Apart from that, the purpose of providing the ageing Bostrom a ride as a wild card is unfathomable.
