Marco Melandri on Tom Sykes: In my opinion he deserved to win the title more than anyone - he was the real champion.

Hmmm, I wonder, is Melandri spitting some sourness?

Anyway, I know that in this website a high % of people are Brits and pro-Sykes and were gutted about the results.
That's normal, that's fine.
But that shouldn't mean one has to call Biaggi names (or "undeserving", "lucky champion" etc) as it happened in previous threads.. .

Biaggi has no fault and he's done great.
He's 41 (the oldest driver to win a SBK title, and I wonder: maybe even motoGP and other motorbikes world championships?), he won on a bike which was far from being the fastest on the grid (!) and he's been driving at the sharp edge of this sport year in year out for the past couple decades.

Well, in brief: it's unfair knocking Biaggi down just because Sykes has lost by 0.5.

I do wish people would think before posting. Italians talking about Italians in Italy. I wonder just how much coverage of Tom Sykes' superb achievement adorns Italy's media... much less "question" stuff they don't even cover?! So it's not Melandri who's a d*ck... quite the opposite in fact, for simply putting into words (essentially in the Italian Media) what many people across the sport are already thinking.

Melandri just showing his lack of class really.....sour grapes because he threw his bike into the scenery all on his own.
Nobody is taking anything from Sykes but Biaggi fought hard for this championship...his double at Misano starting tenth on the grid was sublime, coming through the field to finish second in Australia, getting back on the bike at the nurburgring after a high speed crash to score points that eventually won him the championship.
Melandri, shut your mouth you sore loser........

Mmmm....bike racing is an emotive sport and everybody has their favourite riders: No doubt that Melandri is a very very talented rider, but I can't help but think that this is just sour grapes from Marco. Had HE won by half a point from Sykes and Max said Sykes was the real champion, I can just imagine how the WSB commentators would have crucified Max! They just seem to have it in for one rider....Max!

Careful Marco,dont make Max slap yah around again lol
IMO whoever wins the title deserves the title
Im sure if Tom were to do things over again there would be things he could have done differently.
