WSBK » Biaggi wins 2012 WSBK title by 0.5 points!

I think Sykes was the best rider this season. Before this season Kawasaki had neither title winning pace nor consistency. Sykes literally took them up a notch. There were many factors outside Tom's control that prevented him from winning. The half point situation in Monza, and then Ayrton Badovini wiping him out at Aragon, and then the engine failure at Portimao, and finally, the rain today. If one of the four had not occured, Sykes would've won. On the other hand, if you look at Biaggi and Melandri's woes, they were self inflicted most of the time, if not all the time. Congrats to Biaggi though, not many 41 y/o's can ride a bike like that. But for me, the best rider this year was Tom Sykes hands down...

Shakey was well aware of Lowes' existence, he started taking defensive lines as early as abbey, and defended just fine until the last corner, where he bizzarely left a gap on the inside which could perfectly accomodate another bike. Props to Lowes for pouncing immediately - but the opportunity wouldn't have been there in the first place if not for a rookie mistake from Shakey.

What on earth Byrne... He just had to keep the inside line closed, you don't have to worry about the exit out of luffield... Even if the other rider gets a good drive out the corner he still has to do a round the outside. That's pretty basic stuff, he just gave away the win. Hats off to Lowes though for fighting until the end and taking full advantage of what was a rookie error by a very experienced racer.
