Blake Young Will Race World Superbike For Factory Suzuki Team This Weekend At Doningt

http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...?article=37046

Two comments really,
1) since Spies took WSBK by storm intresting to see how many american AMA riders are now getting tryouts! makes sense to me
2) racing is still about who you know as much as it is money and skill!!

Also, there's been several races this year where Blake has been keeping up with Mladin. Making some good passes on him, ultimately not winning them, but showing promise. I guess they want see if he might be the next Ben...

Good choice IMHO. Blake is a good kid, young, aggressive... just what WSBK needs I think.

I would like to see Matt M. on that WSKB ride. It's been hashed out before why he hasn't gone off to ride anywhere besides the AMA but it would be great to watch.

I really thought we'd have seen him put in a ride by now.
as soon as Max N was injured I've been expecting it to happen.
Shame on Suzuki for not making it happen if indeed they are the stumbling block.

Come on....I think we know why. He has it made over here, especially since Ben left. He is top dog at Yosh again, and he only rides hard enough. If he goes to WSBK, he might have to actually ride hard.
