To be honest i dont know why Sam is sticking around WSS which has become a rather tedious championship and with little clout. Personally I think he would go really well in Moto2 and would suit the atmosphere better. Also think Cluzel should return to Moto2 where he too would be a front runner.

Moto2, moto3 and CRT are nothing but fillers for the very few winners in Motogp.

Any WSS rider to make the stupid mistake to move to filler classes in Motogp is wasting his life.

WOW 3 years, thats a long time hope he knows something we don't about the future plans of the team. Or he's had a shed load of wonga thrown at him. Seem's strange to chop PTR for a newish inexperienced team. Is it a Yamaha Europe 3 year contract or just team?
Good luck either way.

Wss ids a joke Bss is tougher?

Absolutely not, bss is a good championship, with evenly matched bikes and riders, but wss is another level entirely,Sam lowes' exact words to me, after his first official test as a PTR wss rider, and as the reigning bss champ, was that even the slowest guy in the class was still incredibly hard work to pass. Sam really raised his game the last 2 seasons, and should raise it again next year on a decent bike.Good luck to him!!!

There always seems to be some idiot who think they are been a grown up to mention Rossi in situations like this . What is your point ?. Do you actually have one ?.
Refering in particular to post by nostradamus .
