Preview – Silverstone.

A technical failure for his machine, however, finally left the way open for two of a new breed of youthful Supersport talents; Yoann Tiberio (Megabike Honda) and Robbin Harms (Stiggy Motorsports Honda). Tiberio's win, in only his fourth World Supersport race, ignited the championship's profile all over again, and with Harms second the immediate battle for second is a fascinating prospect for Silverstone.

There are several other potential Silverstone podium finishers. Charpentier's Winston Ten Kate Honda team-mate Kenan Sofuoglu and Curtain's fellow Yamaha rider Broc Parkes are two obvious candidates, plus of course the immense Supersport talent that is Tiberio's team-mate Katsuaki Fujiwara.

Once more Scottish rider Stuart Easton will ride the Ducati SC Caracchi machine, and will be looking to build on an impressive sixth place at Monza at a circuit he knows well, while British WSS series regular, Tom Tunstall will also be eager to impress on his Hardinge Ice Valley Honda.

Misano, the scene of one of this year's official test sessions, is the venue for the sixth round of the World Superbike series, and takes place between 23 and 25 June.
