Byrne, Easton form PBM BSB return line-up

"When we decided to return to British Superbikes, signing both Shakey and Stuart was always the plan and I'm delighted they've come on board with us. We've won British championships as well as World championship races together and for me it's my dream team.

“We have proved that the Kawasaki ZX-10R is a fantastic bike and have won on it at BSB in 2010 so we know what we need to do. I promised Stuart a deal straight after his crash and he'll be back to full fitness very soon and with Shakey keen to make up for missing out this year, we are ideally placed."

Byrne's defection from HM Plant Honda, coupled to the confirmation that Ryuichi Kiyonari will also not race with the team in 2012, means the 2010 championship-winning operation will have a new rider line-up for next season.

Paul Bird is a man of his word regarding Stuart Easton..He has been there,done it and got the T shirts and i am sure Shakey will be a contender for the title and it will just be nice to see Stuart back on a bike getting back upto speed. GOOD LUCK to PBM for 2012.

@Nick636 - I hope you're right about Stuart getting back up to speed, but after his injuries its going to be a big ask. As for beating Shakey, I have my doubts - he's still one of the fastest riders out there. Fair play to Birdy for sticking behind Stuart.
