Sykes prepared for championship decider



Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) will be joined by his regular team-mate Loris Baz for the finale of the 2013 season, with the Brit entering the Jerez weekend with a substantial 37-point championship lead. Sykes, who scored the most recent of his nine race victories in the 2013 season at Magny-Cours last time out, is now in a commanding position. Only two other riders are capable of catching him before the second race ends on Sunday afternoon in Spain - Eugene Laverty (37 points behind) and Sylvain Guintoli (38 points behind).

Irrespective of what his rivals do at Jerez, Sykes could wrap up the championship after race one if he scores third place or better. Sykes and his official KRT squad are taking nothing for granted and will start the weekend with the intention of finding the best race set-up for the official Ninja ZX-10R as possible, and aiming for race wins on Sunday.

Tom Sykes: "Jerez is a very exciting circuit and it is one which we have tested at in the winter, so we have some good track information. I hear people saying I need ‘X' amount of points or I need to finish in this-or-that position in this race, and so on, but we just need go there and work on our own thing and see what happens after two races. I am quite relaxed. This will be the last round and it all boils down to the last round - again. Last year we were 30.5 points behind at this stage and now we are 37 points in front. We are in a much better position and that is the way I am looking at it. Hopefully come Sunday afternoon, if all things go well, then we can really enjoy the weekend."
