Andrew Gosling's World Superbike Phillip Island Testing Shots, Day 2

The only #1 you'll see this year. Tom Sykes showing he's a true champion

Eugene Laverty rolls out for a new challenge this year on the Suzuki

Fastest EVO man so far: Niccolo Canepa

Under the covers: the Kawasaki ZX-10R gets naked

Johnny Rea does like to be beside the seaside

As does teammate Leon Haslam

The face of experience: Aaron Yates will need all 20 years of his professional career to help get the EBR ready

The EBR 1190RX looks pretty sweet, though

Davide Giugliano has impressed so far on the Panigale

The EVO class has been a boon for the smaller teams. Alessandro Andreozzi is racing an EVO Kawasaki with Pedercini

Sylvain Barrier started well, but a big crash saw him fracture his pelvis

Sykes was on Showa last year, I think this year too. Besides, the rules ban any electronically controlled suspension valving unless it's exactly as in the stock bike.
