West future close to being confirmed

When the Kiefer BOS Racing team confirmed that Dirk Heidolf and Alex Baldolini would be their riders for the 2007 season, it confirmed what most MotoGP fans had been suspecting for a long time; that Anthony West would be leaving the German team for another ride in the 250cc class. According to his official website, the Australian rider is having a bike held back for him by Aprilia for next year, with team and sponsorship issues delaying the process of confirming his competing for the Italian factory.

Vocal about his unhappiness with not being able to ride factory machinery in 2006, West nonetheless managed a series of top ten performances ahead of a number of official riders.
