WHAT?!?!! YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]

As good as he is, he won't win the WSS in his maiden year, he knows none of the circuits!!!

He should have signed with Xerox IMO, as that duke is sure to be a beast next year, and he could learn from the old dog bayliss.

Wish him the best though! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/toot.gif[/img]

have to say i am surprised at this thought he would have one more year in bsb then look to jump straight to motogp as there has been interest in him or then go straight to wsb with ten kate.

[img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img] cant believe hes gone to wss first as part of the deal. ten kate have 4 wsb to fill and one of the worlds best superbike riders has gone into their wss team. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img]

WSS? Huh? I didn't bother to read the news article cause it takes a while to open on my mobile so i had just assumed he's going to be one of the 4 wsbk riders and i was well happy. One brit out one in...but no. wss? Why?

I thought this was great news when I read the headline. Then I read the WSS part. Why he turned down Ducati is the biggest mystery. Still he's out on the world stage now, he'll learn the tracks and probably make the podium several times with a win or two not out of the question.

I'm glad he's out of BSB, if you're gonna ride a street bike you might as well do it on the world stage with a world class team.

You are right. I was hoping that an extra year in BSB with HM plant might have led directly to motogp, but this was unlikely and i'm sure Rea has made the best decision for the long run. Its another Loss for BSB though, and i'm unlikely to bother watching him in WSS.
