Loris Baz will be racing in Moto America this year. That should prove to be interesting.

Lots of interesting people to watch this season, starting with Baz on the Ducati Panigale superbike that Lorenzo Zanetti put on the podium in the last six races of the MotoAmerica season last year.

Josh Herrin reunited with Richard Stanboli at Attack Yamaha. This should be the best opportunity Herrin has had in years. His teammate, Jake Gagne, needs a breakthrough year, too.

After three MotoAmerica championships the last two years, Rocco Landers steps up to Supersport on an R6.

Meanwhile, Brandon Paasch, who was the third of the three clear top dogs in Supersport last year, is going back to the British Superbike Series.

Jake Lewis will be back in the MotoAmerica paddock after a year away from racing, in the Stock 1000 class. Glad to see he's getting another chance.

Meanwhile, still waiting to hear about definitive plans for some other key racers in MotoAmerica Superbike.

Plus, of course, the three U.S. racers in world championships: Joe Roberts on a championship-winning team in Moto2 this year, Cameron Beaubier taking Roberts' former ride in Moto2, and Garrett Gerloff entering his sophomore year in World Superbike after finishing his rookie year strong with some late-season podium appearances. The interesting thing to me is how all three are poised to potentially have a breakthrough year. It's a good bet all three won't but it will be interesting to see who can make the next leap forward.

I discussed this a little at the end of this podcast at the 58:11 mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yd5LS-SxDZs
