He had a podium locked up until the last lap. What caused his wreck? SPEED didn't show it.

Mr. Sykes has trouble handling the bike after the tires warm up and the bike begins to move around. If I understand this correctly the handling characteristics change dramatically as the race progresses. His races always look the same. He begins by winning the pole and then losses his position in the 7th or 8th lap or about the time the tires heat up.

Yeah I know what you mean. Apparently he has trouble makingbthe tires last, he tries to preserve them at the start by dropping a spot or two then tries to stay close to the front so he has a chance to fight back when everyones tires are shot, but by this stage comes his bike is all over the place from his own tires being destroyed.
A british bike mag I buy said that if he tries to take the lead at the start, he has more touble keeping at the front and looses more spots rather than dropping one or two at the start and try to maintain that spot.

Know the feeling. Time for Kawi to put some proven talent on the bike. Like Rea.

If he was only good the whole race as the 1st lap he would be on top of the world.
