TUESDAY 1ST NOVEMBER 2005

Twenty-three year-old Japanese rider Ryuichi Kiyonari will replace the injured Troy Bayliss in the final MotoGP race of the season, the Valencia Grand Prix on Sunday.

Kiyonari, who finished second in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship winning 12 races on the HM Plant Honda, only learnt of his selection at the BSB Championship Awards Ceremony in Birmingham this afternoon.

Former BSB Champion Shane 'Shakey' Byrne was expected to get the ride and only learnt of Honda's decision this morning (Tuesday).

Too bad for shakey but I think Kiyo earned it. I hope he goes well, I think with the old guys not cutting it all the young guys are getting a chance to be the next Rossi.
