Xaus to join Ten Kate

Ruben Xaus signs with Ten Kate Honda for the 2011 WSBK season
Ten Kate Honda has announced the signing of Ruben Xaus for the 2011 World Superbike Championship season.

The Spaniard will partner Jonathan Rea for the new season having been replaced at BMW by Leon Haslam.

One of the most experienced riders on the grid, Xaus will celebrate his 200th WSBK start in the season opener in Australia.

“It's difficult for me describe how happy I am that I will ride with the Ten Kate Honda team next season,” he said. “For many years I have admired the passion and dedication that they bring to World Superbikes and I believe that they capture the essence of the championship. They run a successful Honda dealership in Holland and with the support of Honda Europe they manage a team that has some of the most skilled tuners and engineers. They have shown with all their world titles that they have the right blend of skill and desire.

“I know that I am capable of more SBK wins and I will bring all my racing experience, gained on many different types of machine, to help achieve more success with the Ten Kate Honda team. I would like to thank Gerrit, Ronald and all the guys Honda for the faith that they have shown in me and in my potential.

“I still have a lot of things I want to do in World Superbikes and I believe this team will allow me to achieve what we all aim for. It will begin with my first test with my new team at the end of this month and I cannot wait to start work.”
