The 2013 World Superbike Championship got underway at the Assen TT Circuit this past weekend in the Netherlands.

And although Friday’s qualifying and practice sessions were plagued by rain, the quick times returned Saturday for Superpole, which was won for the second time this year by Kawasaki Racing Team’s Tom Sykes, and Sunday’s double header.

Syke’s Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja was completely dominate in race one, the Brit winning by almost nine seconds ahead of Pata Honda World Superbike’s Jonathan Rea (CBR1000RR) and Aprilia Racing Team’s Sylvain Guintoli (RSV4).

In race two, Sykes was beat to the finish by Aprilia Racing Team’s Eugene Laverty, with the other Kawasaki rider Loris Baz taking third.

Due to Guintoli’s 3-6 finish at Assen, the Frenchman retains the points lead with 111, 28 ahead of Laverty.
