Was I the only one who thinks that Tom Sykes grenade his engine on purpose while coasting off the Moscow SBK race 1? You can see him twisting the throttle on and off, perhaps in an attempt to "clear its throat" but then he held it wide open seconds before the thing exploded in a ball of fire. It's no secret that he has been unhappy with his technical team latest blunders and most likely that DNF exacerbated the situation. From my point of view, his body language showed disgust as he tossed the burning bike down to the ground. Yes, the thing was on fire but, to me, he was too pissed to worry about that.
