[kropotkin thinks...] - Ben Bostrom Confirmed As LCR MotoGP Wildcard At Laguna Seca

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


Reports and rumors that Ben Bostrom would make a wildcard appearance at Laguna Seca had emerged late Saturday night at the Sachsenring MotoGP race, with the peerless Italian website the first site to break the news. The rumors quickly gained traction, as it became clear there was a large PR push behind the American, and now, Bostrom's participation has been confirmed for the Laguna Seca MotoGP race as a wildcard.

Bostrom had been offered the ride after negotiations between LCR Honda and their sponsor, Rizoma. The motorcycle accessories manufacturer has just opened a major push into the US market, and their outstanding relationship with both Bostrom and Bostrom's AMA Superbike team, the Michael Jordan Motorsports team made Bostrom the logical choice to help promote the brand in the US. Given Toni Elias' disappointing performance this year, LCR needed something extra to help its sponsors with some positive exposure.

It is understood that no extra bikes will be laid on for Bostrom: the American will take one of Toni Elias' two Honda RC212Vs, leaving both Elias and Bostrom with a single bike to compete on.
