tardozzi, to be fair anyone who gets coverage on a motorsport site is a great rider, in fact anyone and everyone on the grid are great riders. It comes down to who you want to compare him too.

Its alwasy good to have riders from of different nationalities comes through. Incidently, he's had a few good performances at wsb level too, so he's shown he is actually capable of being there with a few tweaks here and there in my opinion. He just needs to try and keep shiney side up a bit more often.

I'm a big fan of Sheridan's, but I think this is a daft move.
a) it's almost certain he's buying this ride, with money that would be better spent elsewhere
b) he's over the age limit for the class, so InFront are being political by allowing the entry
c) no-one has ever gone from STK into a decent team in either WSS or WSBK, heck ex-champs have gone backwards
d) there is little chance the 2011 ZX10 will have the pace of an STK BMW
e) the team he has joined isnt even one of the better STK teams, for a rider with WSBK & WSS results & experience?

Actually the age limit has been raised to 26 from 2011 onwards so he is young enough (he'll be 24 next season) and fair enough about BMW is doing good but only Badovini has been riding it to the max, he will be competitive maybe top 5, he didn't do bad in WSS in 2009 at kyalami on the Yamaha(6th), so you never know, give the guy a chance.

And any of them have done exactly what beyond WSS? Okay, Fabrizio managed a 3rd in WSBK last season on the factory team, but beyond him? Exactly. Nothing outside of WSS Championships by Sofuoglu who did next to F*(k all in WSBK. Gino Rea, my well do much better, seems to have the talen. Jury is out on Morais though. Seemed fast in SA but nowt everywhere else. RRW is reporting that the new ZX10 test in Valencia, Sykes and crew managed a mid 1:34 on day 2 of the test. That would put them between 14th and 15th on the grid compared to this years qualifying at Valencia. Looks like the new bike is a step up after all, from the back of the field to the middle of the pack is quite an improvement.

rosta ruck: omg it's just testing. The bike is not finished yet at all. If they're would already stand in the middle of the grid (without quali tyres I suppose...) then I think that 2011 ZX10R has a bright future ahead.

Strange that he's going back to world Superstock... Supersport would have been better with more exposure and he did have a good ride on a yamaha last year.

Oh well good luck, hope the new Kawa kicks a$$

I thought Superstock 600 was the class for young riders? I didn't know Superstock 1000 had an age limit too. Lucky this isn't the case in the British championship or the Superstock 1000 grid would be much smaller!

Come on guys! Give this guy a break! This guy is a down-right hard working racer! He'll ride anything you throw at him and doesn't complain much. He seems to simply enjoy racing! Outside of Jamie Hacking and Jordan Szoke, Sheridan is one of the only 3 riders in the world to help Kawasaki shine in the last 5 years! Part of me thinks he should have gotten an even better ride but, this will have to do for now I suppose. At the end of the day, this guy gives 100% and enjoys being out there and that says alot about him. Of course the sponsors want victories and I think Sheridan is a guy who can get them there with the right support.
