BSB

@BennyHedgehogs Totally agree. All BSB does is allow the riders to be home in time to watch Downton Abbey on Sunday evening.

He might be able to ride a bike fairly fast but has not yet learnt such things as integrity,honesty,loyalty.I hope one day he is suitably rewarded

why did west go

simple is it because he is one of the all time underrated riders, who just needs the right machine, luck etc etc or just a money grabbing antipodean git. I'm sure his talent will answer the question after all look at his past record, er well thats that then.

The bmw team said they would expect any rider to go, as any rider would...... even 1 week out from motogp, ask any rider in WSB, any rider... we have a spot on a motogp bike, do you want it, bye bye WSB and hello motogp..... i bet anything that any rider would go...and you would too

Anyone care!

Was anyone excited about him being in BSB…….thought not.

Haga makes a good addition to the grid and brings international recognition to the championship, as did Hopper last year. Personally I would rather his seat was filled by one of our home riders. Besides Im willing to bet a cup of tea and bacon roll he achieves little in Moto2.

Cant see any team trusting him if he loses this moto 2 ride.Pretty low to let the team down a week before first race.

Tommy Bridewell has got the ride.

Great news, be good to have another British charger on the grid. He should go well with the BMW.

Shiny side up tommy. Hopefully supersonic are in it for the year, then have a bunch of data before they change the WSB rules.
