Are these the main team?
PTR seems to be just providing the bikes for everyone else, as in you pay your money, PTR prepare and take the bikes to the track, then everything else is down to you then PTR take them back again. Quite common.

Put up or shut up for the twins next season.

As Chaz has shown you can be a world class rider and still fall out of favour unless you keep yourself in the frame with every team boss. I'd hate to see either Lowes go on a Davies-esque AMA mystery tour.

Alex has gone from WSB teams chucking bikes at him to being back on the FTR in a matter of months, he more so than Sam must perform. Sam needs wins, wins ,wins.

Good luck lads, was kind of hoping to see one of you pop up on a Moto2 bike... One day!

I dare say this is just a question of sponsorship, as i would think Sam will be the only PTR rider getting paid next year (as opposed to paying for the ride), and if Bogdanka are the main title sponsor, with the Bucks, then they will be the colours to be seen in.

As for the boys needing a good year, yes they do, but they will. Sam is in his second year, feels comfortable, has his learing year under his belt, and we will definitly see wins, and maybe (hopefully) the championship.Alex has in no way taken a step backwards, but has gone back to the team which most suited his style, and i firmly believe we will see bigger and better things from him this year, on one of, if not the, best bikes in the series. Definitly the WFR teams No.1. Graeme Gowland included. Please do not forget, Alex won 5 of the first 6 rounds this year, and the fall out with the team was over an issue nothing to do with rider or bike performance.

He will have all the settings from this year and should be in with a chance on getting the title.(if he can calm down a bit) Good Luck Sam.

Bogdanka is just the title sponsor, which was parkalgar, Not sure if parkalgar will have any involvement. Same bike, same team just a title sponsor change Sam will be fine, good crew, good bike, top pilot he'll be right!!
