So the most over rated rider in Bsb gets another ride. I can only presume Peter brings lots of money to a team to keep getting these rides! 140 odd starts and one podium? More chance of my beloved Bolton winning the premiership this season than Peter getting in the showdown!

@Sideshowbob 140 odd starts maybe but only 26 of them on a truely competitive bike (tyco 2011) of which as stated in the write up 17 were top 10 a few top 6 and a podium!
Yes so over rated... Not! Think he will go well with GB as long as they've up graded the bikes like they've said. Good team good rider equals results!

bit harsh on hickam he's done alright when he's been on good bikes

and no offense to GB moto they havent been a massive team so why wouldnt he get a ride like this for this type of team, they are an improving team just need some decent riders onboard i think he will be getting regular top 10 finishes which is better than what they were getting

i think he will do well

Shocked he hasn't done more because on the Tyco honda he was frankly faster than bridewell, so much so that bridewell left the team. But on the buildbase BMW he hit the floor 2 often.

Sideshowbob, make sure u walk around a bit, u can get dvt from sitting in UR armchair too long! Hickman hasn't had many 'good' rides, tyco bike was and he rode well, crescent bike was and he rode well with no testing at all!!! He did ok on Buildbase I thort after jumping on late notice, he scored the teams 1st final qualy on only his 2nd ride and then there best result, not saying he's great but deserves as much respect as the rest, but armchair critics always think they know best and I know for fact there's always more to it than meets the eye! Anyway just thort I would put that out there so criticise as u like,

As for better than tris or Luke-who knows, time will tell!

PS sideshowbob is about rite, he's off the Simpsons and your very comical!
