VDM is hungry and rode great all weekend up until his late race wreck. Sykes is still butthurt from Baz last year. If he thinks the new guys VDM or Torres should pull over when he's near then he's in for a rude awakening and more crying...

F**k VDM and Torris. That was a dick move and everyone knows it. if he'd taken Sykes out that would have been a nasty off. Hope he went off on him in the pits

Yea, awesome racing and I can't wait to see the next one. That'll keep people in the seats. I'm glad Kawasaki signed Rea...I don't think Sykes has that killer agressiveness like Rea showed on the last few laps of each race. I do respect Sykes skills though, very much and usually my Desktop has his pics....maybe now, Rea...

I am as well personally glad Rea is on our side this year he can be very aggressive and use to get me nervous when ever he was next to Sykes racing.......but.....with that said everyone knows Sykes just doesn't do well at that track so before anyone starts to dismiss him I suggest you give it more than one round so know one gets eggs in face. :idea: :wink:

Oh believe me, I'm a HUGE Sykes fan also, but sometimes new blood is good for development. Sykes got them where they are, and now lets see a different riding style. I think Kawasaki was very lucky to take a win out of there and it should be an interesting season.

I know huh...Rea said he promised the team he would not try to take the lead and the 1st race blew that strategy out the window....I think the whole Kawi camp was pleasantly surprised how well it went over all for both Rea and Sykes considering the track history for Kawi. :thumbsup:

It would most definitely be wrong to count sykes out, as he never does real well at PI. But clearly, he's got a formidable and hungry teammate now and some aggressive, young talent to compete with. I expect him to put up some decent results, but he's not going to be running away with too many races like he was able to the past couple years.

Rea has been riding an inferior bike for a while, so he's gotta be in hog heaven now. I don't know what the rule changes did to change what Tommy has been accustomed to riding the past few years., but I have to imagine that a couple steps backwards have been taken.
