If you thought Tom Sykes would never get over that half point that cost him the 2012 WSB title, you were wrong. Sykes (Kawasaki) capped a great series by clinching the 2013 WSB crown after his third place finish in race 1 earlier today at Jerez. The last Kawasaki rider to win the equivalent world title was Scott Russell in 1993,
Race 1 saw Eugene Laverty (Aprilia) take the win over Marco Melandri (BMW) in second and Sykes in third. Laverty was again victorious in race 2, with Sykes coming home in second and Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia) third.
