Tom's bike is definitely the fastest, a shame it had to happen like that, but when you play with a sh*t load of fire and dont get burned, well thats asking for more than a little luck. A real shame it happened that particular race.

if its dry next round Tom will not have a chance at beating Max, if its a shortened race with mixed conditions, anyone not betting on Sykes is smoking stupid.

Whatever happens Tom has shown his real potential this year!!
I kind of think that the Team has missed something resigning Baz. Should have tried to get Shakey and Sykes!!!

@ Dennisimo.

Agree 100%, Baz will need to be much nearer the sharp end at the beginning of next season, he's had quite a few races now so must have a decent understanding of the Kwak by now. For sure Shakey would have mixed things up nicely had he come over to WSB, I even thought Haslam may get a chance.

@Plaggie Byrne 2009 top Ducati customer rider. 2010 at Althea Checa's sponsorship money bought all the best bits for his bike making it very close to factory bikes. Byrne's bike was of the same spec as Smrz, Lanzi and Scassa whom he all beat.
