WELL DONE MY BOY!!!! it was a superb race for the kawasaki... so glad to see the green machine matching the race pace, unlike last year, where it kept falling as the chequered flag drew closer.
Hope the team keeps up the momentum and Kawasaki and Sykes become a force to reckon with this season post biaggi era....

That was just fantastic, Tom. It looks like you are taking up where you left off last season (after recovering from your early season injuries, of course). I hope the tyre wear problems are a thing of the past now, if thats the case you will undoubtedly be a contender. Those Aprilia boys are looking like the riders that everyone has to beat but I think the Grinner has the package to do it. Go for it, Tom!

Only good over one lap they said...


What a fantastic weekend for Tom! And for Kawasaki in general. Loris is starting to show his potential as well.

So where are the naysayers with all of there "can't win in the dry, blah blah" ?!? Sykes was on fire, race one was pure Boss style. Great weekend overall, short of DNF's or injuries, this dude will be going toe-to-toe with the competition for the title. He even surprised me with the move at the end of race 2, very aggressive and had it not been for the minor curb-clipping I think he could have pulled it off. Hats off to Loris as well. The Kwak-pack is on the move.
