well what can you say? he definitely earned it! I just cant believe he hasnt been picked up by a factory team permanently. He was at Motorpoint Yamaha in BSB and did a great job with little experience, then did some good World Endurance races for Yamaha/ kawasaki too. Also, had two top ten outings last year with Ten Kate Junior in SSTK, first time on the bikes and he was already in top tens!! this kid could be great with some factory help....he seems to be able to ride any bike!

Some French reports seemed to believe the deal was already signed for the remainder of the season anyway, so I do not understand why it would be surprising that he is at Miller. The guy is too tall for GP racing, but at 19 yrs of age he certainly is a hope for superbike racing!

Loris can ride any bike anywhere, last season he rode in British, German and Spanish national rounds, European STK as well as World Endurance. He used to have a bit of a crash habbit in 2009/2010 but he really has calmed down now to the point where, at 19 years old, he has been chosen by Kawasaki to race their factory bike in WSB at a track he's never been to. I bet Rob Mac looks back and wishes he'd kept him for the remainder of BSB 2011!
