'At this stage BSB is a great place for PJ to be and although we have no immediate plans to move onto the world stage just yet, I believe that PJ will have an opportunity to do that within the next few years' - Philip Neill

Definately without question the most talented rider to come out of the BSB paddock since Bayliss/Stoner.

@rod99, so if a rider races part of a year in England the've come from the BSB?!
Jacobsen's an American rider that started out flat track dirt racing in the AMA. I like PJ, as he is a very talented rider but not the most talented young American. I would rate Cameron Beaubier, Jake Gagne, Josh Herrin and JD Beach all higher.

If they were more talented surely they would be making the move over to europe where the better championships and chances to get into Moto Gp are. PJ has come from New york rode exceptionally well winning races having not much testing on the bikes until those other guys mentioned come over and do similar or better then there is no way to tell if they have more talent.

@ Drifterjake....

But do those guys mentioned have PJ's ambition?

If they are so good then they need to be getting off their collective asses and show the determination he has to further his career.

Its a bold and rare move by a young American, they generally seem to prefer staying safe at home waiting in vain for someone to come knocking on their door with a well paid contract....its the Aussies, South Africans etc that actively seek out the rides and they're not averse to living in the back of a van with the bike and riding for food if that's what it takes.

What happened to the ol' pioneering spirit?

I doubt Josh Herrin will ever make it to Europe, but Cameron Beaubier might. Exciting news for P.J., I just wish I could watch BSB here in the U.S. Seems like they've got the right formula for close racing over there...good talent too

The boy couldnt even win the Harley Davidson championship so the chances of him winning BSB and being destined for the world stage are very low! The only thing he brought to Tyco is a big cheque book

@jonop: didnt watch pj's last season in kritisch superstock and historisch wild card supersport races at assen? Pj's got talent for sure! Let's hope he can keep on growing as a rider in bsb next year and ride some podium finish results home. I See him in a world championship on a top team bike in a few years if everything works out for him.
