“Loris stepped into the battle ground last season and really shook up the establishment, so with a full season ahead of him we really should see some sparks. James starts the season as a Superbike 'rookie' and I am confident that he will make a serious impression and be one of the best young guns in the series.
“My team is highly motivated after a couple of tough seasons. We need 2011 to be the year we get amongst the front runners - we have continued backing from Motorpoint, Node 4 and FJG logistics all have supported us through the tough season and are ready to have some fun this year!
“Two young, motivated riders, a fully sorted factory Yamaha and a revitalised team in the engine room… We are more than due a good season.”
Motorpoint Yamaha will launch its 2011 campaign officially 25th March.
