Maybe they offered him a nice chunk of money that he couldn't pass up, or perhaps he surprised himself and wants to make a serious comeback. Going to the races and finishing right behind the current world champion would have that kind of affect on his decision, I would imagine..

Heard rumors about Paulin moving to suzuki too (despite his contract with hrc for 2016)

If both true, Paulin and Townley for suzuki in mxgp seems like a good team !

If it's true , then this is awesome news! I'd really like to see him go for one more try.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
