Tom Sykes Wins World Superbike Race
All I can say is we were at our limit, understood it and stayed there. And luckily for us in the last laps the other riders around us started to make some mistakes and some got unlucky, but overall 25 points is good,” he said.
Earlier in the race, there had been two other crashes. Italy’s Marco Melandri had crashed while fighting for a podium place. He continued but finished 15th. Dutchman Michael van der Mark crashed out and retired seven laps before the end having led most of the race.
Jordi Torres and Xavi Fores of Spain completed the top five.
The second race of the weekend takes place on Sunday, June 18.
