Really bad news for BSB, hope to gradually hear news about more teams joining.
I can bee Alex either going back to MSS or finding a ride in WSBK or WSS - it'd be great to have both Lowes twins in the same series!

Shame. But I hate interviews like this that blather on about it all, but do not give the actual reason as to why they are withdrawing.

Hopefully Lowes & all the other riders and drivers will get decent seats next season. .

A real shame as they looked like they were really starting to challenge the established BSB teams, but better that if they're quitting they do it now than a couple of weeks before the start of the season and leave the riders in the lurch. Alex and Westy should have no trouble getting a decent ride for 2013 after their performances last season

Considering contractual problems with riders in the teams early days and that Schofield appears to be in BSB for the money, then maybe he's decided to withdraw cos he's had to put his hand in his pocket to finance the team. In interviews on tv Schofield always came across as a business man first and bikes came a distant second.

norifan - im not a fan of the management there but to be fair to them the funded that team through their own pockets pretty much. no rider paid for their ride in that team unlike other teams who ask for stupid amounts of cash or sponsorship

they got their riders to sign contracts for longer than a year and now they pull out!! id be pretty f8cked of if i was the rider as they were pretty insistent about these contracts

to be fair they have done very well this year and in the evo class, no one likes to see a team pull out but i cant help but feel its like a toy to them just pick it up when they are bored and then put it back down when theyve had enough
