Stop blaming Sykes, he can only go so far on tires that wont work with his bike, unless he was riding a prototype and could make mods to his chassis/etc... What you are seeing with Sykes is the product of a single 'control' tire.

single control tires can fly somewhat in GPs, even though you would end up with bikes that look and behave very similarly (monoculture) Its pretty unrealistic to think that multiple production makes will be able to compete fairly in that environment, especially when there is a serious limitation on what can be done to the bikes after after they come off the assembly line.

Just look at 2011 and Yamaha, best bike by miles, couldnt go any where during the races, at least with respect to its true potential. 2011 the tires were geared for the Ducati, this year the balance is better, but the harder hitters like the Kawasaki are still having issues.

Both Melandri and Kawasaki lost it today. Melandri because he couldn't hold himself back when he needed to just finish the race and Tom by blasting his tyres at the beginning as usual. The reason Max is leading the championship is that he keeps his head and bags whichever points are available. It could have been so different!

Gooooooo Chaz57
The unfortunate start to the season a sloppy gear box and some bad tyre choices only delayed what was inevitable:)

Who fell off,doesn't matter coz Chaz was there when they were falling.

Nice save by Chaz:)whats wrong Marco is ye legs not long enough to stick it back on its rubber

2 nice rides from Laverty and Camier.
