WSS: Althea back to one bike

Althea Honda will enter just a single World Supersport bike for Mark Aitchison this weekend having terminated a deal with Jason O'Halloran after just one race.

The former Australian Supersport Champion joined the Italian team for testing at Imola before racing with them at the following Brno round of the series.

However, O'Halloran, who defected from the British Superbike Championship, would fail the finish the race, prompting Althea to release the Australian as he 'did not deliver the kind of results both the team and rider were looking for'.

Aitchison, who is currently ninth in the overall standings, will be the team's sole representative, while Matthieu Lagrive will fly the Althea flag in the Superbike category.

I feared the worst and now it has happened. Although I don't know all the facts about Robin Croft's SMT - I think Jason should have stayed in BSB if it was at all possible. He was poised to be a regular top 10 finisher and was able to out ride the likes of Julian Da Costa and might have even made a top 5 finish (Silverstone is where he might have really shone) Very sad news
