I see they've signed Christian Iddon to replace Scott Redding next year, with Camier and Haslam staying in WSB next year I can't see anything other than domination from Brookes.

Yeah, Christian is good, but not Josh Brookes good. Hopefully Tommy Bridewell will give Josh a tough time to give us some excitement.

I think I’d don will surprise people next year
He has not had the best teams and got some good results
Honda could be the team next year if they get some good riders. I don’t think the Irwin brothers are consistent enough to run at the front so hopefully Honda will sign a fast rider as well as Andrew Irwin

I had heard Glenn stepped away from Tyco because he was going to Honda next year. With Iddon gone I really can't think who Tyco can sign next year, maybe Lorenzo!!!!!

Tyco could keep Taylor Mackenzie maybe. Not sure if Keith Farmer will be back in 2020, I assume he will.

Yep Mackenzie is a good shout, no matter who they get they won't fight for the title sadly

Well, this is interesting. I thought that Brookes would have the experience advantage last year, and beat Scott. I was wrong.

It's easy to predict a Brookes championship this year. But, given his season end results on the BMW, maybe there's some chance that Iddon will give JB a run for his money.
