I hope this isn't a preview of what's to come, even though I've liked a lot of their riders over the years I can't be doing with the team, PBM are like the Manchester City of BSB.

Come to think of it, Redding like Bautista has a lot of experience of riding V4 Ducati's in MotoGP, none of the Ducati riders in BSB or SBK have because Ducati superbikes have always been twins.

Either way it's not what Scott does testing in Spain it's what he does at tracks he's massively inexperienced at. I think he'll do alright though, I like Scott, doesn't seem to be any bullshit about him.

I've never bought into the idea that a MotoGP rider is superior because he's a MotoGP rider though, for the most part long time MotoGP rider and podium finisher John Hopkins and SBK champion Sylvain Guintoli have been mid pack riders in BSB. Nori Haga did nothing in BSB either.

My expectation is that he walks it. Anything less than a championship win is a failed year for me.

High expectations sure, but I rate him very highly.

Looking at the BSB testing at the moment does anyone know why there's no BMW's?

Christian Iddon, Keith Farmer, Michael Dunlop, Peter Hickman and James Ellison are supposed to be there.

I've spent some time trying to find out more, without success, will keep looking anyway.

I've found out why Hickman and Ellison aren't there, on his twitter he says the brand new 2019 bikes only arrived last week and need sorting before they can go out on track.

Maybe it's the same for the Tyco riders too.
