WSB: Sykes takes control in Rea's absence at Jerez - Motorcycle News

Tom Sykes topped the second day of this week’s World Superbike test in Jerez in the absence of team-mate Jonathan Rea.

Rea had to head back to London on Monday evening to collect his MBE, leaving Sykes to fly the flag alone for KRT.

Second fastest on the opening day, Sykes significantly improved his time to 1’39.692, just a whisker of the fastest time Rea had set on day one – 1’39.650.

The Yorkshireman’s time came earlier in the day, with many riders reporting the track to be much greasier in the hottest temperatures in the afternoon than it was on Monday.

Loris Baz was second quickest as he continues to both get to grips with the Althea BMW and riding a superbike after two years in MotoGP. The Frenchman was 0.776 seconds behind Sykes and looked comfortable out on track, commenting he’d found a particularly good feeling with the front end of the S1000RR.

Cape Superbikes deliver thriller season finale - Independent Online

Cape Town – With nothing but pride at stake, David McFadden signed off his championship year at the final round of the 2017 Mike Hopkins Motorcycle Regional series in fine style, with a brace of emphatic wins.

Which is not to say that he had it all his own way.

Trevor Westman led the first two laps of Race 1, until the Mad Mac’s ZX-10R picked up an electrical gremlin, forcing him into the pits and leaving McFadden to romp home 11 seconds clear of a race-long three-way fight for second between Andre Calvert (KC Transport Panigale), Gerrit Visser’s Samurai Racing R1 and the Suzuki South GSX-R1000 of Alex van den Berg, which ended in that order - with all three crossing the line within 0.327s.

Brandon Staffen on the ex-Hayden Jonas AJH Cooling ZX-6R was the first 600 Challenge rider home in both races. Picture: Dave Abrahams

In Race 1 Staffen came home ahead of Karl Schultz (ASAP World...

Troy rides in the superbike series - Gloucester Advocate

Troy Ryan started road racing motorbikes just over a year ago and has recently competed in the 2017 Yamaha Motor Finance Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK).

The year nine Gloucester High School students loves reaching speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour and is now aiming for the World Superbikes.

Troy is only 15 and can’t legally drive a motorcycle on the road. However, he’s able to compete in the senior series after completing a road test.

In April, Troy travelled to Winton, in Victoria for round two of the ASBK series, looking to compete in two classes – Supersport 300 and Yamaha R3 Cup. Here Troy was named ‘Best Presented’ by Australian Motorcycle News magazine and was placed in the early April edition as the centrefold.

His mother, Belinda was so proud she bought all the copies from the Gloucester newsgency.

WSB: Rea tops opening day of Jerez test - Motorcycle News

Jonathan Rea started off the 2018 World Superbike season where he left off as pre-season testing got underway at Jerez today.

The three-time world champion took to the top of the timesheets from his first laps of the 2.8-mile Andalusian circuit and remained there all day as he continued to improve as Kawasaki test their machine in full 2018-spec for the first time.

Rea’s quickest time of the day, 1’39.650, is quicker than he has ever lapped here on race tyres and just 0.7 off the time he set on qualifying rubber at Jerez 12 months ago to outpace a number of MotoGP machines.

After clocking 42 laps today, Rea won’t be on track on Tuesday as he heads back to London to collect his MBE from the Queen, before heading back to Jerez to complete the test.

KRT’s second rider Tom Sykes followed Rea on the timesheets, some 0.355 back after 57 laps on track while Milwaukee Aprilia’s Eugene...

The truth behind Britain, MotoGP and World Superbike - Motor Sport

Many Britons wonder why British riders do so well in WSB and not so well in MotoGP. It’s a long story, says Mat Oxley…

Congratulations are due to Jonathan Rea; heaps of congratulations: his MotoGP-beating lap time at Jerez last week, his history-making third consecutive World Superbike title, his record-breaking points haul, his MBE, his BBC Sports Personality of the Year nomination and much, much more. All richly deserved by a great talent riding at his peak.

But as for all the WSB versus MotoGP talk of recent days – following last week’s combined WSB/MotoGP tests at Jerez – it’s just hypothetical barroom banter. Sam Lowes knows this better than most, having competed in WSB, MotoGP, World Supersport and Moto2. On Saturday he tweeted, “Stupid all the talk about WSB and MotoGP at Jerez. Means nothing. Lots of awesome riders on awesome bikes. Different tyres. Impossible...
