With a wee bit of luck I'd be hopeful for a top 10 in one race. Hopefully Xaus can stay on it this time so the guy can send out a bit of a marker to where he is in terms of talent.
Anyway good luck Alex.

I'm a big fan of Alex, he absolutely exploded onto the scene in BSB evo and his first race ride for MSS, but since then he seems to have calmed down a bit. I want to see the Alex who got those incredible results in BSB evo and put the MSS on pole to ride the Honda at Silverstone, not the recent more sensible one.

Gonna have to disagree that he has calmed down. How consistant can you be switching bikes three times in one season? Not to mention in two different series. This kid has more talent in his pinky finger than most have period! He started on a Honda with testing, then switched to a Kawasaki, with next to no testing. No he is riding WSBK one of the toughest series in the world with NO testing. Come on now. Most of us would be lappers in the field.

the kid might do ok or maybe not,good luck to him,but honda need rea on the bike to be up pushin hard at the front for wins,his all aggressive style, and his round the outside overtaking passes is awesome to watch,he just brings raw excitment to the race,and nobody else on a honda will be doing that,wsbk and honda need guys like rea
