I honestly don't know much about Sykes prior to his entering WSBK but I sincerely hope he has it in him to eventually run up front.

When I see those 2 Ducati bikes running up front assisting each other as a team of riders rather than as individuals I'm always thinking to myself how much better it would be if Spies had his team-mate up there with him helping to block, being some one he can trust to run 2 wide into a corner, and of course being a 2nd rider to force the Corse riders further down the points table.

Here's hoping he has it in him to run up front this weekend.

Go Tom!

I actually think he does have it in him. The problem I think is that the Yamaha is not as good as we all think and it's only Spies who makes it look good. I reckon Spies could put the Kawasaki on the podium if he wanted. If Sykes was on a Honda or Ducati we could see top three finishes from him. So hopefully he will do this weekend at his home round.
