Tom Sykes believes his lap times during testing at Motorland Aragon are indicative of how the high winds affected him during race day around the same circuit.

Anyone who doesn't grasp the concept different bike shapes make for different aerodynamics, and that in turn means they really will be differentially affected by changes in wind speed will fail to grasp where Sykes is coming from.

He's a rider with a long history of straight talking.
If he says he believes it was a factor he probably genuinely does think that. It has a logical basis.

Unlike a lot of the wannabes who seem to have started griping here, Sykes isn't one of the Biaggi/Melandri whining brigade.
Why are they so miserable?
Are they troubled by wind?
