Gutted for him, i really did think he'd blow the world away when he got on that bike last year but its just not worked out, the bike clearly didnt suit him as he always looked uncomfortable and it never looked like it was flowing like he looked on the Yam.
Hope he finds a good bike on the World level.!

Oh and for god sake dont sign for Pata Aprillia unless they are changing bikes! - Unregistered

He's too good to go back to BSB. He's got so much more to offer but needs to be on the right bike. I think this year would have been different for him had he not suffered Glandular Fever at the start of the year. Shame that there's not many decent rides left on the grid - maybe a good partner for Chaz at Parkin Go Ducati if they run a two rider team??

its a shame, but definitely the lack of consistency let him down. There were some genuine flashes of pace but never over entire race distance.

He seemed to cut down on the crashes in the second part of the season, but the results were still all over the place.

Not many factory options left in WSBK but if a team were to come in running R1s I think he'd definitely be worth a shot.

"I could see him an a Duke next year, I think he's suit that bike more."

Team mate to Chas Davies at Parkngo perhaps?

Nah....why would the an Italian team want two Brits
