Tom you are not letting anyone down not even yourself you have grabed 4 poles this year and a win and 2nd in the championship and not that far behind Biaggi. You could win the championship this year and i hope you do or come seriously close and win a few more races ive been a fan on Tom for many years!

Your doing a great job Grinner!

I can not believe Tom believes he's letting himself down!
I totally agree with Daniel's comment - you have done yourself proud and your fans...we would all love to see you win the championship...you deserve it.
Good luck at Miller..and remember not to place too much pressure on yourself!

Tom shouldn't do himself down. New bike this year and he's gone from nowhere to challenging for wins in every race, wet or dry. On any bike first you have to beat your teammates, which Tom has consistently done. Now he's consistently beating the established 'stars' and teams with all-out factory support.
I'd love to see him win the title but realistically it's going to go to Aprilia, BMW or Ducati - however it won't be for the want of trying or maximum attack at each race.
Come on Tom!!

Just remember its a long season Tom and youve done great so far... dont put too much pressure on yourself to do well at every round as things will happen, just keep a cool and calm head and basically do what youve been doing as its clearly working - you just need to work on more consistent results on the sunday now.

I'm pulling for Sykes all the way. I think the only thing he needs to change is the tendency to try and pull out a big lead at the beginning every time, I think a bit of pacing / strategy / tire conservation is the last piece in the puzzle. If these races were 5 lap sprints, the guy would win every time!

Go Tom! And don't say things like this and give others a chance to get in your head.... they are SCARED OF YOU right now.... keep the Kwak-Attack rolling!
