2012 Portimao WSBK FP1: Sykes Sets The Pace

Tom Sykes set an early target for the rest of the pack to reach, with Three BMWs and the Suzuki of Leon Camier eventually getting to within two-tenths of a second. It looks like another Tissot is on the cards for the Kawasaki man, with the championship leader Marco Melandri getting on terms with the track early.

Hopper

What's going on with him? I really expected him to do well this year. Is he still hurt, or is his confidence just shot and he is riding scared?

if I knew

If I knew, I'd tell Jack Valentine. Hopper's performance in BSB was the John Hopkins of old, but these last few weeks he's being shown up by Leon Camier who looks like he's finally got a bike he can push.
