i dont want to sound like a hater cos im not i think sam is hugely talented but i look at this class this year and dont see lots of stand out riders other than sam and obviously keenen its not as strong as it was a few years ago with cal,eugene,mccoy,lascorz,sofouglu,davies,pirro

im pretty sure this will be sam's last year in this class wherever he finishes (hopefully 1st) would love to see him in moto 2 and progress through those ranks rather than wsb

I would have thought sam would get a more competitive ride at wsbk but he may want to join the motogp paddock, who wouldnt want to play in moto2

Moto2 is a career black hole if you're not fortunate enough to land on the best bike in one of the best funded teams....there's an aweful lot of quality riders and a fair few former world champions stranded downfield in that championship.

He's in with some very experienced riders in SS600 and he'll be learning a lot from them, he's already a much improved from last year, personally I wouldn't like to see him move on anywhere until he's matured a little more as a rider.

I don't think he wouldn't get a seat in WSB. Davies, Salom, Laverty, Crutchlow - the best of Supersport in the past few years - all moved up the WSB, some of them with very well supported teams.

Moto2 is definitely not the way to go, a rider needs a massive amount of cash to take with him to even dream of a competitve bike. WSB will be a good choice,as we have seen from former WSS front runners. I think he will do well there, a competitive bike will be there for him, i'm sure. And please, it is very easy to forget, but Sam, and Alex, are still only 21 years of age, they have a long, long time to make it to the top.
