From a press release issued by Eric Bostrom's manager, Norm Viano:<BR><BR>BOSTROM STAYS WITH KAWASAKI <BR><BR>October 1, 2001 - Alton, VA. The intense rumors that have been swirling around Eric Bostrom for the past few months are both correct and incorrect. It is true that Eric had significant interest from various teams here and abroad, but the "Boss" has decided to stay with Kawasaki for another season, and compete once again in the AMA Superbike Championship. After clinching the 2001 600cc Supersport Championship this weekend but coming up short in the Superbike Championship (finishing 2nd), Eric will graduate to being a Superbike-only rider and will mount another challenge for the Superbike title in 2002. <BR><BR>"I'm stoked to be back with the same team because of the relationship we've been building over the years - and we've been stronger each year. Definitely, the crew that works with me is really good, and changing teams can be - well, you can spend a lot of time learning how to work with the crew. So being back with the same team means you start off ahead of the game."
