WSBK » Sykes tempers speed with caution to extend lead


@ 1moreround Sadly, I agree, Johnny's GP window has passed. He's no spring chicken, and with the other riders he'd need to fight, there is no way he'd get a competitive ride. The obvious choice would be a customer / open Honda. And there he'd be competing with the likes of Redding, Bautista, Bradl, Aoyama and Hayden. And frankly, were it 5years ago, maybe he'd stand a chance, but now? I don't think so. Too much to learn and adapt to. It's sad, because I feel even 3 or 4 years ago, he could've done it and been lightning fast.

WSBK » Sykes tempers speed with caution to extend lead


@ MOST of the above I agree 100%. It is hugh time the Rea fans stop blaming the bike. The only reason Johnny is on the Honda is because Johnny WANTS to be on the Honda? Maybe it's not being beaten by a team mate as the only guy who can get SOMETHING out of it? Maybe it's (hopelessly) waiting for a MotoGP ride? Maybe it's complacency. I don't know. But Honda have rumoured a V4 for the last 3 years, with NO sign of it actually happening. Johnny needs to cut the ties or live with his choices, and the fans need to do the same. Kawasaki had YEARS' worth of cr@p, so they built a new bike. Good on them, anyone who hates on them for that is mental.

WSBK » Sykes tempers speed with caution to extend lead


The second race was SOOO frustrating (even though I knew he would back it off). He is managing his championship really well. We all saw what happened with Sylvain, and he had no choice, he, and the rest, had to take the risks to try and capitalise on Sykes playing it safe. A few points are better than none. Baz impressed again, great ride. And a shout out to Dave McFadden!!!! First Superstock podium. SOMEONE GIVE THAT KID A PERMANENT RIDE!!!!!

WSBK » Portimao ‘a bit extreme’ for Superbikes, says Sykes


@ Braaahp People love to hate on someone when they're at the top of their game. Unless you sit back and smile ALL the time (though they'll find reason then too) you will pick up flack. I, myself, am guilty. I hated on Rossi for years. I still stand by a lot of what I said, but I take some of it back. He has been fantastic since the start of the year. Two years ago, people could not stop going Tom for not making his tyres last. Now, they are the best bike on track come race end. A few comments out of emotion after winning a championship and people will hate like there is no tomorrow. Ps. Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not.

WSBK » Portimao ‘a bit extreme’ for Superbikes, says Sykes


@ fastestbloke What about Donington? Brno? (He liked that one too) Nurburgring? He has done well at Portimao. Could've had a double podium last year were it not for that warm up lap brain fart. Regardless, the Kawasaki is working well again this season. Tom and Loris are both looking great and I think it'll be a great pair of races this year again. We could also see the Panigale chow some speed this time round. Aprilia are always strong here. The Honda and Suzuki will probably battle though.

WSBK » Sykes: Hand injury is slowly improving


@ KnowNothing You are severely missing the point mate. Sykes is in NO WAY expecting a paved road to anything. But I think, as Shamarone said, the least you can ask of your team mate is to NOT take you out! And it has been a long time coming! It is just unfortunate that THIS time, it was a genuine mistake by Baz, but he has made dangerous passes all season. Sykes has even said a few times he enjoyed the battles up front. Like I said last week, ANYONE, Rossi, Laverty, Rea, Davies, Lowes, CARLOS-FREAKING-CHECA, would be super annoyed at being taken out, injured, and scoring NO points (and being close to missing a round or two if it had been ANY worse) NO MATTER WHO TOOK THEM OUT. Quit manufacturing reasons to turn him into this self entitled person he's not, when pretty much ANYONE, will tell you he's one of the nicest guys in any paddock. GO TOM! GO BAZ! GO TEAM GREEN!
