IT SEEMS to be almost definite that Australian Jerry Burgess and his pit crew will join Valentino Rossi at Marlboro Ducati in 2011.

Burgess has been non-committal about his MotoGP future since it was announced that Rossi was joining the Ducati squad in 2011 but American journalist Henny Ray Abrahams was reporting on Friday, October 15 that the deal had been done.

Prior to this, all that was known was that none of the men on Rossi's side of the Fiat Yamaha had committed to staying on; it had been announced by Yamaha's Lin Jarvis that they would not be with the Yamaha outfit in 2011.
