Superb news!

Hopefully Iddon will continue to improve and Rolfo is a good yardstick against which to judge his progress.

Rolfo should be experienced enough to be good at developing the bike - so personally I think two wise choices by ParkinGo.

Factory backed team with a good sponsor and then put a pay rider on it. What is going on here, Oddon is a good rider but will need a season and a complete team leader. If they are both struggling how do they know if its the bike or riders. I don't understand this but its just my opinion and parkingo know what they are doing.

Well, I was expecting riders who are both younger and having more experience. Yes, Iddon is young but he hasn't proved yet (where he finished BSS?), Rolfo has the experience but his days are a way behind.

Don't think the team will be a major force next year.

Christian finished 4th in BSS this year (if it had been a shoot out like BSB, he would of won) hopefully both team and riders can work together to get the best out of the bike, people complain that there isnt enough bikes on the grid, and when people put good money into racing for us to watch, good luck to them.

Good luck to them, Iddon was brilliant in the second half of the BSS season.

My main worry would be the 675 engine. The Triumphs have notably lacked for top end against the fours in WSS and seem better suited to the shorter more flowing British circuits.

Iddon ???? Who??? Are you serious ? Rolfo I don't mind, but there's plenty of other riders that are a lot better. MV back of the grid !!!
