James Toseland will join the World Superbike series again next season as the Briton swaps places with Ben Spies. Toseland will be replaced by Ben Spies at Tech 3 next season while the 28-year-old returns to the World Superbike series with Yamaha.
Toseland enjoyed a strong rookie season in MotoGP in 2008 and has been a regular protagonist in the mid pack battles over the two years. His focus and commitment combined with his previous experience and success should prove a winning combination with the Yamaha team.
Speaking about his return to World Superbike James Toseland said: "I'm looking forward to return to World Superbikes. I want to show I'm still the rider that can win world titles. Of course there is some disappointment at losing my opportunity in MotoGP as I believe the challenge was still achievable, but the R1 has proven to be beyond the strongest bikes in Superbike and I know many of the Yamaha World Superbike Team guys, so I'm going to pick up where I left off and give 100% to achieving good results with the team.
"Within Superbike there were a few options available to me, however the way Yamaha have treated me since I joined them has been outstanding. They gave me a great opportunity in MotoGP, but now I do wish Ben all the best in his campaign and my aim is to continue Yamaha's success in World Superbike."
