Hidden but finally showed up

Sykes in his Yamaha days, then in Kawasaki, always hidden. It was a time when Lascorz just flied in WSS riding Provec Motocard Kawasaki ZX-6RR. I though then Kawasaki will turn their fortunes in 1000cc category sooner than later. Now Sykes and Motocard Kawasaki have finally showed up as main contender and it's very interesting to watch tomorrow's races. Whatever'll happen, win or second place, it would be just nice to wellcome Lascorz on the ceremony, give him a tribute. The Greeners are already a winners in some way.

Tom rules. Off topic Michael van der Mark wins the superstock600 race and is now World champion. Finally à great day for motorcycle racing here in Holland! Next year Michael will be riding in the supersport class on a ten Kate Honda 600. I know you Brits have à lot of great riders in Wss and Superbikes wich is great? But finally we have à real talent coming too. Carlos is verry happy today, and 2 great results from the Grinner and Kawasaki tommorow won't hurt that feeling at all.
