pinkie - why 'probably bin it', he's done a pretty good job of keeping the MSS upright and didn't he get taken out from behind at Valencia. Surely Andrews has to be one of the most improved / highest regarded riders in the BSB paddock, hence he got the call to fill in at Valencia

Doesn't take rocket science to suss that 'pinkie' is not an Andrews fan!!!!!!!! .. and probably not a Brit with an inane comment like that!!

I'm sure you'll do well Simon, you are indeed one of the most improved riders in BSB of late and you deserve the chance.

I am really looking forward to seeing him back on a bike. I am a really big fan of his and can't wait to see him on next years bike (which there is talk about them getting in August). Good luck to you Si!!!

The incident in Valencia was horrific...and I know it has been a long and painful rehab process for him. I think its great news to see him back on a bike, hopefully this will show he is ready to return to competition at Mallory.

Can ANYONE tell me if ANY tv station is covering the superstock races? Looking at Eurosport there is no mention.....just a large hole (filled with old wsb) between the Moto2 and 125 & GP races. Thanks in adavance as im sure im not the only one wondering!

I didn't know Andrews, Brooks, Rutter & Jessop were superstock riders as well? I thought they just did the superbike races? Seems a bit unfair againt the regular superstock riders?

Steve, in Josh & Simon's case, they are filling in for injured riders.
This is the highest profile meeting for Superstock, and the teams want all their bikes out their.

The other pair would be racing on the basis of "because we can" (though not on a Ducati apparently).
Any GP support races will bring out extra riders that aren't doing the championship.
Yamaha Australia are not contesting this year's Oz Superbike championship in full, but they entered round 1 at Phillip Island, which supported the WSBK meeting, and will no doubt enter the non-championship superbike support races at the GP.
It's all about getting seen by TV & big crowds & impressing the factories.
