Rumor of the Week Has Ben Bostrom Riding LCR Honda RC212V at Laguna Seca MotoGP Round This Weekend

LCR Honda's umbrella girl Lauren Vickers shows off the satellite team's RC212V during the Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP round at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in August of 2010.  Ms. Vickers has since moved on (along with '09-'10 rider Randy DePuniet) to the Pramac Ducati team for the 2011 season. 

The LCR Honda team has been struggling in the 2011 season with current rider Toni Elias, and rumors running throughout the MotoGP weekend in Sachsenring had the team possibly looking to put '98 AMA Superbike Champion Ben Bostrom in the saddle for the Laguna Seca round, which kicks off on Friday, July 22.

You can check out the rumor mill article here thanks to Dean Adams and Company at  As of this posting, no other word has come through on this anywhere on the internet, but I thought it was interesting anyway.  (I would think that BBoz' contract with Michael Jordan Suzuki would keep him off of the bike due to restraints riding another brand, but, you never know!)
