The Hydrex Bike Animal team has revealed its rider line-up for the 2008 British Superbike Championship, with former MotoGP rider James Ellison set to join forces with road racing specialist Guy Martin.

The Honda squad, which ran Karl Harris in the BSB this past season, will aim to build on a solid 2007 campaign which saw Harris finish inside the top ten of the riders standings and also saw Martin finish second while riding for the team in the centenary running of the Isle of Man TT races.

Bike Animal also backed young rider Leon Camier on his maiden season in the BSB, but will now back the Hydrex team for the new campaign.

"We are extremely excited about this new partnership for next year," Bike Animal managing director Robert Williams said of the deal that sees the company join up with Hydrex for 2008.
