If Sykes gets a double podium this Sunday then he's a genuine title contender for sure. Not for a long long long time has the Kawasaki team had both of their riders looking fast on their bikes. It would appear Kawasaki has finally turned it around.

I know there's still plenty of this race weekend to go yet but it's looking good so far.

McLarenP, I also would like to see Rea do the double, hell I'd like to see any of the Brits or Irish do the double. But ultimitely if the racing's close and fierce I'm not bothered, I just love the racing.

So, with that in mind -

How AWESOME is this racing!! The top 15 bikes ALL doing 1:48's! You do NOT see this in MotoGP. If it weren't for the CRT bikes they wouldn't even have 15 bikes on the grid, let alone all doing laps within a second of each other! And WSBK has 6 different manufacturers as opposed to the 3 "Factory" teams in MotoGP. I love World Superbikes :)

Can you guys for once lay off the MotoGP slagging? Yes WSBK is very good at the moment, but that's no reason to try to mock people who enjoy both series. Sheesh.

It's looking to be a close one, but I think in the end it'll be between Checa and Biaggi.

Smrz is a one lap wonder, Rea is an overrated crasher and Sykes will fade again. Biaggi - Checa - Melandri are the most likely to be on top come race day. Experience will decide again!

I support Jakub to death but even I dont believe that he s gonna be able to win races some day :-( He just dont have those racing guts. Consistency is not his problem, he can be fast all race long, but he cant have oponents aroud himself.

Wow! Was Kawasaki pulling out of Motogp a good idea or what? They must be serious about being competitive in this class for sure. Gone are the years when the green machines were just fillers in WSBK.
