BSB is very different.
    I think he'll be a bit happier as he'll have proper kit and able to race at the front. He hasn't had that too often.


    I still hear nothing about young Danny Kent

    That remains to be seen.

    I'll bet you 10 he doesn't finish the championship in the top 3.

    I remember a documentary of him as a youngster (Moto3?) doing the European circuits in a motorhome etc. He came across as a happy go lucky kid, but at the same time, totally dedicated to his fitness & training. Maybe success & money changes some more than others.
    I always thought he was on borrowed time because he didn't stop growing, he was probably at his optimum size when he was about 16 !

    Sure. Whatever you like. I'll even go an extra tenner that Bird sacks him before the end of the season
