Hasn't Sykes been at the top of the charts for practices and qualifying most of the year anyway. No news and a bit early for Biaggi as I'm sure he'll be concerned on getting his bike setup the best he can instead of poll position as long as it's decent and not too far down the list it shouldn't be an issue.

Go Tom!!

Win that championship on the very last round. You Guys deserve it. It would be just beautifull to dedicate it to Lascorz.

Actually this picture is out of date, since this weekend Tom is wearing aspecial livery livery on his helmet with The "17 Power for Lascorz" design on the top of his head.

I wouldn't get too excited yet. If the series was won by the fastest guy on Friday and Saturday then Tom would have wrapped up the title long ago!

But you never know. Sunday is a huge long shot for him, but you never know.

Whatever happens this weekend, Sykes has had a mega season and should be congratulated hugely. Not so long ago people were questioning whether he cound cut the mustard at this level. He's proven more than capable and if Kwaki begin thinking about MotoGP again in 2014.....

Great pic, the guy looks like he could be riding a GP bike. Get in Max's head, make him choke! This race could end in tears for some, I think you are going to see "win it or bin it" aggression from at least a handful of guys....

Sykes & Melandri are racing for second place. Methinks Biaggi will win another SBK championship and deservedly so. But then, as we have seen this year, anything CAN happen. What happens if the heavens unload torrents of water from the sky in teh morning for a wet/semi-wet race ?? Crikey !!!!
