BSS: Sykes blitzes Cadwell free practice.

Tom Sykes on the TAS Suzuki put in an awesomely fast lap at the demanding Lincolnshire circuit of Cadwell Park during second free practice ahead of round ten of the British Supersport championship.

He lapped in 1min 29.989secs almost a second under last year's lap record held by second place man, Cal Crutchlow. The Northpoint Ekerold Honda rider topped the time sheets in free practice one but was pushed back into second by the fast Yorkshire man.

Eugene Laverty on the Red Bull Honda was third fastest with Padgetts Honda rider Dennis Hobbs in fourth place.

Pere Riba is back from injury and running in thirteenth place on his MSS Discovery Kawasaki. Ian Hutchinson who replaced him while he was hurt has remained with the Kawaski squad and was in ninth place at the end of the session.

Former South African Superbike Champion, Hudson Kennaugh has taken the Buff Kawasaki ride that became available when Rob Frost crashed heavily at Oulton Park leaving him out of action for the rest of the season. Kennaugh has never raced at Cadwell before and was in twenty eighth place at the end of second free practice.
