Qualifying on the pole is awesome but Kawasaki needs to figure out how to make it go the whole race distance without falling back through the pack. I want to see Sykes on the top step of the podium.

I love every person here goes on about hOw Tom just goes backwards in the races. The races he's really fallen far back in this season was miller. And there his bike setup was comPletely off In race one and he didn't fall that far behIndin race two.

Other than that, look how many Podiums he's had this year and when he's been OFF the podium the People in front of him aren't exactly nobody's.

So cut the guy a break.

Unfortunately I expect Rea to win both races unless the others can come forward. The Kawasaki just is't there yet, for a full race distance. The reasons Sykes goes backwards are due to the tire management and electronics imo.
