I reckon JC could be one of the surprises this year particularly if the Suzuki is on the pace. Also hoping Leon starts the season with the form he finished last season.

Be interesting to see how he does. Odds stacked a bit against him given he is the only rookie (Lundh, Baz and Sandi have all had SBK experience), isn't on the best bike on the grid and the competition is famously accomplished, but so long as he can get in the upper mid-field on occasion and keep Camier honest, he will be just fine.

And, of course, No Boo.

Cluzel can be seriously fast (he's won in Moto2)

It unfair to expect a huge amount from him until he's gelled with the bigger bike and got to know the circuits. But if all goes well on the learning curve and the Yoshi engine does all that's hoped don't be too surprised to see him sniffing around at the podium later in the year.

I reckon Crescent were inspired with this signing. Cluzel is fast, and has been able to adapt from strokers to moto2 to WSS and get to front-running pace. He can get stuck in and race too.

I shan't be surprised if he goes very well. Asking for podiums is going a bit far though - WSBK is a proper bunfight this year I think, with lots of fast guys capable of wins.

Can't wait!
