Jerez WSB: Laverty wins, Sykes crowned champion

Tom Sykes has won the 2013 World Superbike championship at Jerez after finishing third in race one. Sykes becomes the fourth Brit to win the World Superbike crown. The race was one by Aprilia rider Eugene Laverty from pole position. The Irishman rode a strong race to hold off BMW rider Marco Melandri to the line. Melandri moved in to first position...

Honda & Yamaha

I know Honda & Yamaha dominate MotoGP so is it any wonder the "smaller" factories compete elsewhere. I don't know if anyone else has noticed but the highest placed Honda & Yamaha are 17th & 18th respectively. Well done Tom & Kawasaki

half point

 Well done Tom Sykes, you should have been champion last year if only they made intermediate typres for Monza! 12.5 points from a sure 50 becuase of the organisors is not fair.

WSB... On the way out?

Good on Sykes to take the title but looking at the field runners, not many BIG names extant in WSB.:unsure:

Apart from about three or four the rest go past you.

Fogarty, Corser, Chili, Ducati gone and next Bmw, the glory days seem to be well and truly over.:upset:

Well done Tom! Top Dog!!!

Would have been great to see you slide it round (race 1) for the top step, but the points were more importent. Thanks for a great season of blistering riding!!! Well done Tom!

Best weekend of racing

Well done Tom!

I have got to say I used to like Marco Melandri but he is now such a dirty rider, class overtake by Laverty on the last corner - Melandri braked early to upset Laverty's line, as he did with Haslam at Donnington. Laverty just rode right around the outside! Ha ha, up yours Marco!!!

Long Live WSBK

So so pleased to see Sykes win it this year! Pleased to see Kawaskai at the front the last couple of years! Like has already been said just hope Dorna dont screw the series up.

Also MCN you have 4 stories of fallout from Philip Island GP and yet only HALF a page dedicated to another British WORLD champ, I think you need to look at your priorities and realise superbikes need more of a showing! Better Racing than GP and full of fast Brits!
