2016 Magny-Cours World Superbike FP2: Davies Leads Camier Into Superpole

Chaz Davies continued his morning's form to grab the provisional pole position ahead of Leon Camier and the Kawasakis of Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea. Michael van der Mark made up for his lost morning, sixth quickest, behind Alex Lowes.

Nicky Hayden and Davide Giugliano both surprised with failing to get into Superpole two while Markus Reiterberger and Matthieu Lagrive sit in eleventh and twelfth, the favourites to get promoted to the second session.

On WSBK.com the summary mentions Sykes having multiple rear wheel locking incidents.  I wonder if the same transmission gremlins that handed Rea two DNFs is now an issue for Tom.

So, your theory is that to fix Rea's lack of engine braking, they've made Sykes's bike over-brake?

Sykes's rear brake was overheating, locking on. At one point, he nicked a bottle of water from a marshall to cool it down and unlock it.
