What is Sykes eating now days man! He is too good in qualifying. Lascorz is too weak in qualifying. All seven manufacturers are represented in the top seven positions. Thats the fun in WSBK. Motogp is just for virtual people on virtual machines. WSBK is the real and best.

I think it would be a travisty if he didnt keep his ride after all this work and the results he is pulling out, easily the best Kawasaki rider for a good while now.

Yeah, this is why W.S.B. is far better to watch than MotoGP. W.S.B. offers less predictability and has more competative bikes on the track so offers much more excitement. You can sometimes say who you think will be in the top 5 and get it totally wrong, but in MotoGP it's a done deal before the start!!

Thought WSBK has been a bit of a let down this year in all honesty. Its pretty boring with Checa walking the championship.

Moto GP isn't much better but the best racing as ever is with the lower classes. Moto 2, British and world super sport have both been absolutely amazing to watch.

So meh you can keep your WSBK I'd take moto 2 over it anyday.

@SBK - that is patent nonsense!

Sykes is a very good rider, but let's not over egg the praise.

Spies is nowhere near Casey Stoners standard and Sykes is nowhere near Spies standard - so Sykes can't possibly be at least as good as Stoner.

he's always fast in qualifying and the start of races.
if they could find a set up to make the tyres last a race he would be finishing near the front a lot more.
i think tom is a great rider deserves a good wsbk ride next year
