WSB: BMW sign Troy Corser

Quote:
BMW HAVE announced Australian Troy Corser has signed to ride the all new BMW S1000RR in next year's Superbike World Championship. The former double Superbike World Champion has agreed terms for two years and ends months of speculation as to who will join Spaniard Ruben Xaus in BMW's debut in the Superbike World Championship next season.
Troy won the Superbike World Championship in 1996, becoming the youngest rider ever to do so in the process, and then again in 2005. He has been runner-up in the WSBK championship once and third place on three occasions. To date he has taken part in over 300 races, been on the podium 126 times, and his 42 pole positions have earned him the nickname of “Mr Superpole”.

Peter Mueller (Executive Vice President Development and Model Lines)

"With Troy and Ruben, I feel confident we will have the best riders possible for our start in the Superbike World Championship. Troy has unrivalled experience in the series and that, together with Ruben's exuberance, is our 'dream team' and the combination we wanted, right from the start of this project. I feel sure that their knowledge of the series will definitely help us become competitive very quickly."
Shrewd move by BMW with TC's developmental skills.
I'm liking the look of this team

That leaves his Yamaha ride up for grabs..............

Roberto Rolfo rumoured to have signed to partner Biaggi at Aprilia.

Corser is a great development rider. Sure, the teams on his resume don't always sick around after the fact (Aprilla, Foggy Petronas), but that didn't stop Corser from doing these teams proud when they existed.
