Carnt comment on this rider, never heard of him. Maybe he is a huge talent and going to be the shock of the season. But its a totaly diff type of riding, I would have gone for Walker or Bomber.

This will tunr out to be either a really inspired or a really unfortunate choice of rider.

But it ain't as daft as it seems at first hearing.
If they get the bike sorted he could be one of the season's surprises.

The team should be commended for giving Iddon a chance, makes a refreshing change.
With no disrespect to Stalker and Bomber, if younger,inexperienced riders aren't given a chance, what does the future hold?
Good luck to him and to the team, could cause a few surprises!

Christian's a talent and a top kid as well. He's had wins in World Supermoto and finished 3rd a few seasons back in the S2 class. Nice to see Sorrymate getting involved even more after their backing of Jenny Tinmouth in the past season or two.

I don't know if Crash have written this or just copied the press release, but someone needs to do a bit of proofreading! Just try reading that first paragraph!

Christian is fast on tarmac, no doubt about it, but maybe needs to temper the aggression a little?
If he stays on I reckon he'll get some good finishes.....could be an inspired choice.

Christian did the KTM Super Duke championship last year, although i think he was midfield at best. Surprised he didn't just go for a season of Supersport or even Evo, rather than making this jump immediately. When guys like Ian Lowry are without a ride, it seems a strange choice.

Bad mistake from Crash to miss the typo in the second paragraph, even if sorrymate isn't in the dictionary.

There was an interview with Iddon in last weeks MCN - he said his tarmac style is the totally different (very smooth) compared with his Supermoto style.

It might be the biggest leap in BSB history, but I would say Jean Michel Bayle's switch to 250 GP's was a bigger jump and was at world level too.
