Toseland makes MotoGP switch

MotoGP will be the new challenge for Ramsey resident James Toseland next year.

The Ten Kate Honda rider will leave the World Superbike Championship at the end of the current campaign moving to Yamaha's Tech 3 Team.

With four rounds of the current campaign to go, Toseland leads the standings by 43 points in his attempt to secure a second title.

He describes the move as a "massive gamble" saying "he wants to be the first British rider to be competitive in GPs since Barry Sheene".
