Tom Who?

He hasn't been relevant since it rained most of the season many years ago

I have followed this series since it began many years ago, and Tom is one of the last true world superbike champions before the series turned into world British superbikes,

It was just a matter of time. Once JR came over and immediately dominated on the green machine it was clear that Tom’s days with KRT were numbered.

Add to that his pissy attitude towards Loris Baz and then JR later probably made it an easy decision.

Great superpole rider, but has always had problems making tires last over race distance without having electronics smooth things out for him.

The guy was world Champion, he's still in and around with the best of them, but even he says he needs change. He is Kawasaki through & through so although I think the Duke will suit his hard on power & brakes style I can't see it. Leon Haslem tioed to be the replacment, I like him too and he should win the BSB championship this year I don't think he will be any better too be honest.

Going to be pretty tough. Smooth is fast.

I heard that Micheal Van Der Mark or Chaz Davies will be the replacement for next season.
