Alex Lowes in frame to join Rossi, Lorenzo and Crutchlow in MotoGP
New British Superbike champion Alex Lowes remains in the frame to join Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Cal Crutchlow in MotoGP next season.
The Lincoln-born superstar is wanted by British team Paul Bird Motorsport for 2014.
Reports in the national motorcycle press claim a deal has already been done, although after clinching the title for Samsung Honda yesterday Lowes insisted he had yet to sign for anyone and heaped praise on his current team.
"If I could stay with this team for the next five years and ride in World Superbikes and MotoGP, I would," he said.

Lowes clinched the BSB crown in dramatic fashion at Brands Hatch, and the Louth-based Honda squad are keen to keep him.
But the lure of MotoGP could prove too much to resist for the 23-year-old, who would be joined in the paddock by twin brother Sam, the World Supersport champion, who has signed for Moto2 outfit Speed Up.
