I wonder if MSV have had a hand in this - the head-to-head battle with Byrne gives 2013 a publicity edge, one it was definitely lacking in the absence of Hill and (presumably) Haga.

Either way, I guess it's good to see Kiyonari back - maybe a year of racing in Asia will inspire him this year.

No-brainer for Lowes, hope he can maintain his strong end of the year.

now speaking as an armchair racer! Kiyo has had more comebacks than Lazarus and is hugely over-rated in my opinion, now that won't be shared by everyone, but look at how poor he was the last time he came back.

However if it adds a bit of spice to BSB then I'm all for that, however I think Loews will beat him all hands down over the entire year.

Didn't see that coming, but great news for BSB, Alex is definitely a rider on the make. I'm just hoping that the Kiyo who turns up will be the fast smooth one and not the one who can't give a toss.
