Tom Sykes is keen to replicate the form that took him to a pair of second place finishes at Brno as he targets victory on home soil at Silverstone.

The rider in bike racing I most want to do well and Silverstone would be the ideal place to get his first undisputed dry full-race win. His performance at Brno means that he can do it. He needs to get with the leading group at the beginning of the race, conserve the tyres by slipstreaming and then blast it at the end. Go Tom!!!!

I am with you there, 100%. Tom actually did a great job looking after the bike at Brno, hopefully he can do it again this weekend!

He looked super fast here last year before the accident. CARRY THE FORM FORWARD TOM!!!

GO 66!

I know everyone wants to see him pull of a "legit" win in the dry, but the reality is that if it's wet at Silverstone (and that's a likely case) it will only make his chances of winning that much better, he is a beast on a damp track. So I almost hope it does rain so he can get his points back up! Either way the wins in dry conditions will come. the bike is certainly coming along, I think he looked more stable and composed than Melandri last round out (no run-away in race two, he held on by his finger tips to beat Sykes)!

@ haw haw haw

You ALWAYS seem to have something demeaning to say about Tom / People posting in support of him, yet, I don't think I've EVER seen you contribute ANYTHING of substance. Am I wrong?

i red about drive by wire or ride by wire
from Kawasaki Racing Team...they are working hard,
now we have to support them as always (for whos that do) looks well in any case...

seems in Brno he calm a little and start
to try just be near the front without wear down soo much tires, he still to final laps...very good!!
if he finally find how to deal with tires to final laps...would be awesome...lets see what happen, and enjoy, flow, "be water ma friend"
