Alex Lowes is a young rider who's confidence has taken a big knock! Having come off several times now, it shows in his face how it has affected him, so how re-assuring that he has been given another chance to finish this season off and show all his ctitics how good he really is! Riding in W.S.B. is a helluva step up and I think he put too much on his own shoulders to produce good results. Both the Lowes boys show incredible talent, and once Alex gets his mojo back, he will again be competative and display his skill on a bike. Look forward to it Alex as I've always backed you!!

Do sponsors pay for leathers at this level of racing? 'Cause this boy has had more sets this season than I've had my whole life :)
Good luck, It's always good to see young talent fighting at the pointy end!

When did Rob Mac last go through a season with the same 2 riders all year? Money seems to matter a lot more than talent to him. Lowes and Bridewell are talented riders, but so are Baz and Westmoreland.

I should have bet on this! When I heard he is searching for a new team, I thought "Motorpoint Yamaha". Sadly I don't think it will be a long partnership.

Maybe Baz to MSS Colchester Kawasaki?

Bet he doesn't last out there until the end of the season,and that's only 7 races!

I think it's fair to say that Alex has had more than his fair share of crashes this season but when he does keep it upright this kid can be really fast. Hopefully he will use this opportunity with Motorpoint Yamaha to give his confidence a must needed boost. Jumping from an evo bike to a full BSB bike and then a WSBK machine was a big ask especially for a guy who did not have any experience racing at these levels. He has tonnes of natural talent and I hope that now he can perhaps take a step back and begin to understand exactly what went wrong for him.
