A decent young rider would be wasted in World Superbikes. A move to Moto2 is what he needs, just make sure it's with a good team, on a good bike.

As we've seen with Sam Lowes, Moto2 is a completely new level compared to World Supersport. A runner-way winner in SSP is a top 10 in Moto2, but we've finally just seen what this kid can do, so maybe he's ready for a bigger challenge... not in the Superbike paddock.

Revnuts I agree that moto2 is the direction he should follow. WSS is a bit pointless these days unless yur name is Sofuoglu.
Sam Lowes unfortunately is on the wrong bike to be seriously competitive but I think he has a chance of the odd podium this year.

I would love to see him in Moto2 and eventually in MotoGP. Unfortunately, there is virtually zero sponsor interest when it comes to motorcycle racing here in Holland, so he would need to land a ride on merit alone. We all know how unlikely that makes getting a decent ride.

vdm is on a pretty good bike, with a team that would probably favor him as much as Rea. I think hes right where he needs to be. The only thing that needs to be done is the electronics on their WSBK offering. They could always follow BSB, and ditch TC, that would take care of a lot of problems and disparity in WSBK.
