amazing, let's hope next year's 17 inch slicks work with the bike and respond to the riding style. ooh i just realized... better yet... let's hope ezpelata doesn't screw the pooch altogether. definitely the bigger threat now. :rolleyes:

Sykes' strategy for tomorrow: Push as hard as possible.
Biaggi's strategy: Be careful and bring home some points.
Melandri's strategy: There isn't any.

Pretty impressive SP time for Sykes. As usual, not very confident about him staying at the front if it is dry tomorrow.

More impressed though by Corti on that Pedal-cini Kawi.
Even ahead of Baz. Crazy!

What a very entertaining season and a fitting end, to boot.

Baz is always losing 1 second per lap from his team mate (in practice and race) after almost a year, he's doing a bad job, not a great job...

i understand he's very young (and cute and french), but you can't say he's doing a great job because of age...

Well, Biaggi will be tiptoeing so he won't risk anything which means he will not be fighting for victory or even the podium. So the question remains: will Sykes (or the Kawa) be able to keep the opposition at bay after midrace? Judging from the past, probably not, mainly due to the Kawa's tyre treament...
