Richards returns to Triumph?

Glen Richards will not continue with HM Plant Honda in BSB next season and instead switch back to the Supersport class, according to a report on Visordown.

The Australian, who won the 2008 BSS crown for MAP Embassy Triumph, is said to have signed for the TAG Triumph outfit.

Richards, who missed five rounds of this year's BSB championship after fracturing his femur at Knockhill, finished the season twelfth overall with one podium.

HM Plant Honda, which fielded fellow Australian Josh Brookes alongside Richards this season, is yet to confirm any of its riders for 2010.

UPDATE: Speaking to Crash.net, Richards explained that he knows the TAG team well, but denied even talking with TAG about a ride for next season (see separate story).

Easton has already signed for Hydrex. Don't know whether its fair to judge Glen on this season....serious injury thro' no fault of his own cost him a lot of on bike time + the HM Plant bikes haven't been up to much this year either.... There's no doubting the guy's ability...he was superb on the Triumph winning the SS championship last year, and won the Superstock 1000 championship the year before, so he earned another shot on a Superbike, shame it didn't work out.
