Congrats, Mika Kallio!

We were sorry to hear that Casey Stoner is unwell, but also thrilled for Mika Kallio, gaining a 3-race opportunity with the MotoGP factory Ducati. Well done, Mika – go for it!

We are particularly delighted since Dave had the chance to meet Mika at the recent WRC in Finland, courtesy of our new friend Pekka Vihma’s generous hospitality. Dave, being an ex-pro superbike racer, had much to chat about with Mika, who aside from being extremely talented, is a superb guy and most gracious. Here’s a pic of the two of them together:
