I would love to see Haslam able to contend again.

I thought this story was more interesting. Really, Tom just needs to get over it. Harden up a bit. It's racing ffs!

He's playing head games with Baz. Definitely not a good look for Sykes.

If I were Baz, I would give him a bump at every opportunity.

You really have to feel for Leon Camier. Where is he? Fishin'? How can someone so obviously fast suddenly be back on the couch watching?


And Alex. Doin it tough. Ahem.....

Isn't Camier injured? He was riding the Evo BMW, but his replacement is doing very well--never a good thing while you're away!

Camier was the replacement rider. The injured rider (Sylvain Barrier) is now back.

So here we go..Spectacular footage from SP.
Sykes is just such a compact rider! I can't really compare him to anyone I've ever seen. (I've seen a lot...:-)) Hard to bet against him winning again. Him, the Bike, the Team, works goodly!
