2013 Imola World Superbike FP1 Results: Sykes Fends Off Giugliano And Rea

Tom Sykes, as is his way, took early control of the timing sheet, beating his own pace-setting time four times in succession, and setting a pace that would take some matching with six laps under 1'49. The only other rider to record more than one sub-1'49 lap was Jonathan Rea whose provisional second place was snatched at the flag by Davide Giugliano.

Further back, anyone hoping for a glorious return for Noriyuki Haga would be disappointed with the returning showman struggling back in 17th place. Admittedly, this is his first session here on the BMW, and he is beating his team mate, but if he can't qualify for Superpole, his one-off race could be just that.
