well...I am surprised that he is not with the Yamaha next year.. I wonder if he made the move to land a more competitive bike or Shaun Muir indicated a change was forthcoming?

At any rate I wonder who is riding the second Yamaha? Will it be on the grid at all? I thought that it would have been JE and Bridewell next season so this is surprising... but the Kawasaki is a sought after bike so Ellison may believe that he has a better chance on the Kawasaki.

Is it me or the signings seem late this year?... all round from MGP to WSBK and BSB

Yea, I agee with the above. Bridewell and Brookes will be at Millwaukee next season. It appears as though Tommy outperformed Ellisson. If anyone watched the Bsb season review show, apart from AL and SB, the rider who was nearly always at the front was Tommy. Really looking foward to next season and think TB and JB are a great combination.

Interesting. If GBMoto Team get their heads around running the Kwak's quickly (Walker's experience has to help them there with base settings and feedback) then this team could be great fun to follow.

Seemed like Ellison found the R1 a handful all year, while Bridewell jumped on it off the Kwak and (though he said it was a smaller working setup and riding window) got on with it well straight off.

Ellison though has speed and when he had good days n the R1 he was fast. If he gels with the ZX10R & finds it less fussy - JE can be serious competition IMO. It'd be great to see Stalker fast n happy and showing the young un's he can still show em the way home too!

Can't believe Chris Walker is still riding in a competitive championship.

Guy is as hard as nails.

Saw him years ago on the GSXR750 at Knockhill, he destroyed the field in the wet.
