|Tom Sykes in action at Imola (src:motosocial)|
Tom Sykes' performance with his ZX10R is currently great. After got pole position and third place in previous race at Phillip Island he also got the pole at Imola with two second place finishes and a new lap record. What a result! this result is absolutely great comparing the previous season which he only got one podium at Nurburgring wet race.
Sykes was lead almost in a whole race at Imola but he was easily over taken by Checa in the rest of lap. Sykes and Kawasaki team have a problem in the tires endurance. They absolutely need an improvement for next race. Despite Skykes didn't get the first place although he was dominated, this is a positive result for him and Kawasaki. This is a proof both for Sykes and ZX10R that they could be competitive in this season and they in a way pursuing WSBK championship.
