Shame, what next for old Leon? Obviously not gonna have the factory BMW next year, No more Alstare, Baz and Sykes look like a solid team, so where to?

Ten Kate Honda?
Crescent-Fixi Suzuki next to Camier? (As I can't see Hopper being retained)
An Aprilia somewhere? Maybe a Ducati?

It's wide open and shut tight at the same time for the pocket rocket...

All signs point to Honda at the moment apparently. Given the Fireblade seems a bit of a poison chalice at the moment, the fact Haslam did well on the Stiggy Honda means they are probably chasing him quite hard (so long as Honda don't stipulate they need to keep a Japanese rider...)

Visordown eh? Funnily enough I just won an arai competition. The prize? A visor signed by Leon and his old man! Chuffed to bits!

I shall be routing for him in Russia and i'm sure he'll get a decent ride next year as he is a good rider on lots of different bikes. The BMW has been a challenge for him, but i'm sure he'll do well on it eventually.

I've also heard rumours that he's been linked to a couple of GP rides and a load of CRT bikes although, not sure CRT is where he wants to be. I'd like to see him on a GP sateliite Ducati!

Used to love watching him on the Airwaves Ducati in BSB
