Ha, I wondered who was going to pay for J.Ellison to ride! Canny work from the Buckmeister...

PS Total number of 'sportsriders'in ROmania = F.A squared. PTRs Romania base will be very quiet.....

Apologies Geo. I didn't mean that Romania doesn't have some good racers but the sports bike market for PTR? i.e track day riders, club racers?

I agree Bill,

If he would of stayed in BSB he would of got the Relentless Suzuki by TAS ride for sure! But i can understand his point of view, if he does well in WSS for 2011 Parkalgar are looking ot step-up to WSB in 2012 and Ellison would be the obvious choice of rider.

Any rider with real ambition want to compete at world championship level.....BSB is a good series but unless you're happy making a living in the 'small pond' it should only be viewed as a temporary stage in your career on the path to testing yourself against the best, and the best race for world championships.

I don't think that the World stage has the WOrlds best riders. The BSB boys usually prove that when they duff them up as wild card riders. I have seen Ellison beat Toseland on a privateer Bike in WSBK. I have also seen him beat Biaggi and Checa in the rain. as a wild card rider. Infact I think that BSB has some of the best riders in the WORLD

You are saying that BSB has the best riders in the world?
Kiyo didnt exactly exceed expectations at world level & the 3 riders you have just mentioned Ellison beating were whilst he was also competing at World Level.

BSB is a stepping stone to Worlds, its just some riders havent shown their potentional enough to the World Teams or dont have enough money - which is why there are still in the British Championship - competeing against the Best in this Country - what ever nationality.

Paul Birds WSBK riders were ontop at the BSB meetings (which they should be!!) and The world riders dominated the BSS lads at Silverstone (which they should do)- with highest place BSS finisher Sam Lowes - who was obviously noticed and taken onto WSS.
