Loris was class in BSB only being held back by a crappy bike provided to him by Rob Mac. When a personal sponsor folded & Rob Mac pulled his ride the only thing that stopped Loris being signed by another team who were offering a paid ride was Rob Mac took legal action to make sure that he was not released from his contract even though he was no longer riding.

Very sensible of Loris and a nice gesture to the team. He seemed to have the pace to have passed Tom.

I was so happy he got the chance to ride the Kawasaki (obviously not the circumstance that led to it). As others have said, he's been hugely impressive but was being held back by a cack bike in BSB.

Hope he gets to stay on if that option is available. I really think he can do well.

Met Baz when he was in BSB. Very mature and grounded, belies his 19 years. I'm sure that it will not be lost on Kawasaki that Baz had the pace, but decided to help the team and Sykes being a title contender. Very wise. Deserves his place. Big things to come.
