Come on Gents, Tom was 30 points behind at the start of this weekend thats a near impossible gap to close, he gave it his best and lost by 0.5,hard to take but Toms day will come, well done Lad!

Sykes went in to this weekend 30.5 points down, it was always going to be a tall order. You can't knock him he gave it a good shot and rides well under pressure. A good rest and some winter testing and if the team keeps doing what its doing then next year should be brilliant.
From nearly not having a ride to finish runner up by .5 of a point behind Biaggi is a good line on the CV.
Well done Grinner and well done Kawasaki team green mean machine, nice to have you back.
The Helmet was a nice touch, all the best Joan.

What's up with this Laverty thing ? This is a team sport, remember ? I wanted Sykes to win so bad but you can't blame Laverty for helping his TEAM MATE. You can't call him names for it, that's just WRONG !! It's not as if he went ahead and wiped out one of Biaggi's rivals... Get a grip you lot.

Which race was it where Baz stayed behind Sykes?Would have liked to see Tom and Kawasaki win,didn't happen,maybe next year?Would never buy an italian bike for the road,where are ducati or aprilia in endurance racing.Would like to know if there's a statistic anywhere for how many engines were used by each team this year.

Come on m8.. This was the Rider Champion not the Team.. Aprilia allready had the manufacter title on race 1!! Riders must fight not beeing protected by the number 2 rider.. They have to worck both for the Team yes but only when the Team needs points to win the manufacter Champion..!! If laverty give is place him Russia and if was needed on this race he waas prepare to.. was lucky Melandri crash Haslam made mistake, Baz was him front crash when melandri crash.. the Alteah riders where crussing even Guintoli show them how to fight with the Ducati that is good pn this track.. I waas expecting better show honestly.. Biaggi end up him 5 place and nobothy close they where all waiting for the finish
