Despite finishing 1-2 in the World Superbike EVO class this year, David Salom and Niccolo Canepa head into the off-season with no confirmed rides for the 2015 season.

The pair were the dominant figures of the new EVO class, introduced as a stop-gap for 2014 to encourage more teams to enter before amalgamating into a single-class format again for 2015, with Salom wrapping up the title for Kawasaki Racing and Canepa ending the year runner-up on the Althea Ducati.

With Althea Ducati having already confirmed Nico Terol and Matteo Baiocco will form its rider line-up for the 2015 season, Canepa says he is currently on the look-out for another ride.

"We will see what we do next year because we still don't know," he said. "I think we deserve a good bike for next season."

Similarly, with Kawasaki Racing slimming back to its two rider factory pairing of Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea, Salom looks set to be frozen out of its line-up too.

"We don't have anything for next year," he said. "We are talking with many teams, but for now we don't have anything. It is strange because the first and second riders in EVO don't have anything."

Salom has been linked with a return to the World Supersport Championship he finished runner-up in in 2011, or a possible move to Pedercini Kawasaki, which could receive additional support from the manufacturer in 2015.

Canepa, meanwhile, has also been linked to the Supersport class, as well as rides with MV Agusta.
