All the best Tom.

Both the Kawasaki AND you have come long ways in the last 2years.
Take that last step and fight for some wins. Misano looked promising last season so bring on another pole and let's hope a WIN!

just dont beat your tyres up in the first few laps stick with the leading pack and wait till last few laps to do that i know its easy to say but i think thats your weakness the machine is very competitive even if you never win you done a dam good job so lets have a green weekend go tom.

Yip, Melandri does manage to save the tyres. But he has got a whole WHOLE lot more experience under his belt... 7years in MotoGP. BUT again, I agree with the fact Tom must learn to be a little kinder to his tyres. Maybe tweak his style a bit. He's getting there I hope.

But maybe winning the title will get him some of the credit he's due.
JUST GIVE US MORE RACING!!! I think we're in for a cracker this weekend.

It's Toms riding style that is hard on tyres unfortunately,he rushes into corners and has to brake real hard,is relatively slow mid-corner then rags the life out of the rear to make up for that,great when the tyres are new but not sustainable over a race distance.This new bike is working well so if he can adapt a little he could go places???? He still needs to toughen up+not be intimidated so much in a battle as well.....C'mon son!!
