Team Althea Racing Aprilia has the 23-year old Italian talent Davide Giugliano as rider for the WSBK 2013 series. This will be his third in this class after ending 10th last season with two podium positions.

Further SBS has signed a contract with the Supersport team MV Agusta - Team SSD Motorsport with Christian Iddon and Roberto Rolfo as preferred riders.

SBS CSO Christel Munk Pedersen is very satisfied with the signings. "We are proud to cooperate with  some of the best Superbike and Supersport teams and riders in the world.
