Sykes' 6th superpole of the season. He's doing a good job for kawi. I really gotta wonder though, is it that sykes and/or the kawi has gotten so good, or is the competition dropping off. Or has it long been dropped of really. I mean a few years ago everyone thought wsbk was so competitive, then spies goes over there and just makes everyone look silly slow. Makes his then-team mate sykes look terrible. Now sykes seems the class of the field.
Congrats to him and kawi anyway. They're having a great year.

Its his 4th SP of the season, his 6th ever. It's a combination of things... Tom now has factory support, and he has been seated on that bike since the early developmental sstages. So in a way, the bike was made to work especially for his riding characteristics.

And the competition seems to be as tight as ever. So far all manufact. except maybe Suzuki have a shot at the championship this year. Sykes has always shown he could be fast, now he has found consistency!

I think a lot of it has to do with Kawi ditching PBM and bringing the effort back in house.

With Kawasaki giving full factory support and them building a bike in the off season with Tom providing feedback on how HE wants things set up has made a world of difference. Last years bike was built for Vermulen, but after his crash and PBR at the helm it was uphill all season.

Regardless of Sykes and Kawi, those races were incredible, I especially liked Race 1. Man, those two BMW wrecking at the end though, wow. Can you imagine?!
