PBM DU­CATI BRING IN THE BIG GUNS, AND GET FIR­ING

Performance Bikes (UK) - - MONTH IN BIKES -

PBM HAVE made a cou­ple of their trade­mark ballsy moves: first sign­ing ex­iled Mo­toGP star Scott Red­ding, de­spite hav­ing al­ready pub­licly agree­ing to re­tain Glenn Ir­win for 2019. Ir­win in­stead jumped ship to take Leon Haslam’s spot at JG Kawasaki, who in turn is part­ner­ing Johnny Rea in WSB.

The other Pani­gale V4 R was as­sumed to be on hold for Shane Byrne, pend­ing a fi­nal judge­ment on his re­cov­ery, but the team an­nounced they’d signed Josh Brookes rather than risk a va­cant space in the garage, leav­ing Shakey to find out through the grapevine that his ride hadn’t been held open.

Scott Red­ding should pro­vide some en­ter­tain­ment in the BSB pad­dock
