re: "PBM intends to expand to two riders next year, with Avintia's Yonny Hernandez tipped to join a new British rider."

ok fine, but you might as well keep ellison. your CRT is never going to go as well as your kwacka no matter who's on it.

re: "BSB champion Shane Byrne is known to have the option of a MotoGP ride with the team, but..."'s a good job shakey's not that dumb as ee's already been there and knows it's rubbish in the satellite ranks... never mind the CutRaTes.

Hernandez? That well known British rider.

So much for Bird's promised of an all British team. As ever the man is just full of hot air.

It was going to be a British team with British bikes. So now we hear it's only going to be one British rider, and they're still going to be running an ART next year.

Quite right Shamarone - Byrne may have the option, but I can't see him accepting it unless it's very lucrative.

On the subject of Ellison - I think he has done the solid, professional job that I expected and I hope he gets a good ride for 2013.

Ellison appears to have done a solid job in getting the PBM CRT established. No pre-season testing, very little in-season testing & threatened with replacement. When Shakey (who I fully support as agreat rider) tested the bike he reported the same issues as James, yet despite this (in my opinion) "lack of respect" by PB, James kept his head down and continued on an under-developed 'bike.

One class win at Le Mans and regular points scoring is still not enough to get him the support of his team manager.

James, good luck in whatever you do next year, you deserve a better ride and team manager support than you have had in 2012.

I thought James did a damn fine job on an underdeveloped bike with no teammate and no testing and a terrible team boss. PBM is a joke, thats why they lost the factory kwak deal and why they'll always be the rump of the grid in gp.
Ellisons better off somewhere else, surely he'll get a decent ride as he goes quick on anything. Good luck bud.

Good Luck for the Future James! I hope you finish the season off well in Valencia! If this weather stays wet you could just get another class victory. I hope so!
Sure you'll have some good offers for 2013!

I'll be surprised if Shakey chooses to travel the globe next season, he's better off in BSB, he's class though!
