Is Izutsu a newcomer? I thought that he was running the third kawasaki in superbikes last year. Oh well, maybe I'm wrong. Anyways to throw my two cents in, how about Haga for the championship with Ben challenging all the way. I know Bayliss is great and all but I think that he'll have too much competition this year to take another championship (maybe I'm wrong), not to mention Xaus finally coming alive on the other Duc to stir things up.
