I truly fear for Neil now.

Neil needs to rebuild the reputation that he had before he left to race in the US. He was and probably still is a naturally talented rider who won his championships because of that talent BUT....

To return to racing on what has proved this year to be a below par machine takes guts. Either Neil is confident that for 2010 Rob Mac can give him a better machine or He is confident that he can use this as a showcase to gain a better ride for 2011. Either way he is destined either to shine and be offered a better bike because of it or fall flat on his face. Recently too many good riders reputations have been damaged because of the dismal performance of that team

BSB a POS series? Dont think so. May have dropped off a little in recent years but still by far the best domestic superbike series going.

Fair play to Hodgy. He has earned a wedge in America and now wants to finish off his career in good old blighty. Always had time to chat with the fans and take photos etc a genuinely nice guy that all the BSB fans will love back in the series.

One more title Hodgy?

Poor Neil. He must be gutted. I know he really loved living in America, riding factory bikes on proper circuits. Now it's back to blighty on rinky dink tracks.

I'm pleased Hodgson is coming back to BSB.I don't think the Motorpoint Yamaha was so much the problem last season but the rider they had on it if James Ellison's recent test is anything to go on.I think Mr Walker is sadly past his sell by date and has been for a few years now.He's not the same rider he was the last time he and Hodgson battled for the BSB title in 2000.Hodgson is a former BSB and WSB champ as everyone knows,don't see him taking too long to sort out the Yamaha and start winning races next year.I dont think Chris Walker will be too much trouble for him next year.Hope i'm wrong about that,would be great seeing them battling for the title again.

I don't think the bike is anything like as bad as some seem to think.

Walker seems to set his bike up in quite a strange way and Gowland maybe too inexperienced to develope a new superbike.

I expect Neil to do well from the off.
