Jeepers.............. so there is some level of intelligence out there after all!!!! Just like I predicted last week Gadea would be a no hoper and so it proved. At least now the bike will have someone on board who use it's potential. This kid has huge potential and we might really get to see now.

Good call for the kawasaki squad, since the riders they had in WSS werent ready for a step up in the case of Sheridan Morais, or not eager to go as is the case with Sofuogly and Foret. Naturally the next step was to try a STK1000 rider, and since they had a raw talent like Baz in the stable, I find it a logic decision. Hope he gets regularly faster and can help the Kawi take a step up in the championship Fight. We fans need other manufacturer than the italians fighting for the championship, as Yamaha left without a good reason and Honda seem to be asleep.

I will admit that I underrated this guy. (Mostly due to not actually SEEING BSB in this country of mine. But watching him last weekend, I see EXACTLY what you guys were on about. He's AWESOME to watch. Gr8 choice imho.

@ WSBKIsTheReal

We've had our share of arguments in the past, mostly concerning Sykes, but I can't disagree with you there...

Also, concerning Sykes, TOLD YA SO! hahaha

Good choice by Kawasaki! Nice to see that they bring in some ofthe younger talents. I know that many would have liked to see Shakey or even Chris Walker have a go in WSBK again, but come on - its time for a new generation.
Good teammate for Sykes - Loris will be so much faster right from start then Aoyama, Gadea etc

Ah I would have stuck Mark Aitchison on the thing. He showed he can ride the Kawi last season and just needs an opportunity on a decent bike. The thing he is riding this year is not doing him justice. Don't worry when Liberty pullout after Donington Park Guintoli will take the ride for the rest of the season.
