Really promising grid so far. A few 2010 Evo teams such as 77RR, Redline, Red Viper and Two Wheel Tuning haven't announced anything yet either, so the grid could be closer to 30 than 20, which would be great. Kiyo, Byrne, Brookes and Easton look like the favourites, with Hopkins a definite dark horse. Hard to look beyond WFR for the Evo title.

Was just thinking, who are the top riders that haven't yet signed? The Relentless Suzuki alongside Brookes has got to be the best ride left. Obviously Simon Andrews is one, any others?

some great riders in there, gonna be hard enough to make the top 10 for some as there are so many top riders kiyo,hill,shakey,hopkins,laverty,brookes,easton,

then u have the likes of
m lav,lowry,bridewell,linfoot,baz,westy,mason, all capable or have potential to be right up there!!!

plus gowland,richards and lowes on evo (think one of these will win evo), all 3 would do a great job if they were in the main championship to

Just thought, Mason HAS to perform well this season or he could be kicked from the squad in favour of Danny Buchan who's on the STK1000 MSS Kawasaki.

Also hope Gearlink go to Superbike with Ben Wilson next year.

I don't want to be a damp squib here, but for me BSB has too many riders whose careers have stagnated or are in decline. We need more hot riders on the way up, I remember the year when Cal, Sykes, Haslam, Camier, Kiyo, Shakey shot it out on track with great fondness, there are too many riders staying in BSB for too long. Also why have Evo AND BSB, just have Evo, then all riders can fight it out on a level playing field for less cost hopefully attracting more riders. The quality of the BSB series can be judged by how many move on to greater things at the end of the season.

sweeble its a very valid point you make, but do u not feel the likes of lowry,linfoot,westy,baz,lowes,gowla are the next wave? just a question as i think they could be if there were on top machinery i think theyd all be right up the front and potentially progress further, its just getting those opportunties, i agree totally about not having evo and bsb ,feel sorry for some good riders who will be down on power and electronics compared to the full superbikes, but i dont think it should be all evo as the jump to world level would be even bigger, and wild carding would be pointless as theyd be miles behind!
