Despite taking the victory in the first British Superbike race at Knockhill, Rizla Suzuki's Tom Sykes leaves Scotland a little frustrated with the weekend.

It seems the GSX-R1000 is totally at home in either dry or wet races, but the team struggle to find a setup which caters for in-between conditions.

"Race one was fantastic. The bike was doing just what I wanted it to and once I passed Michael Rutter for the lead I controlled the gap until the end," said Sykes. "A couple of the back-markers upset my rhythm a little but I kept going and to score my third Superbike win is brilliant.


"Race two was more difficult with a wet first part and then damp but drying second. Fourth is OK and I'll take the points but if it had been another couple of laps long I would have been able to take the two riders in front of me and a second was on the cards, if not another win.

"I am frustrated a little at the result but overall it's been a good weekend. Thank you to my Rizla Suzuki team for all the effort and support."
