Round seven of the 2013 World Superbike Championship at Imola belonged to one rider and one rider only – Kawasaki’s Tom Sykes.

The Brit began by earning his sixth Superpole in seven rounds, and then swept both races aboard the Ninja ZX-10R. This earned Sykes five wins so far in 2013 World SBK, including the sweep at Imola and his home round at Donington Park.

But there’s more; with his achievement, Sykes also became the only other rider than Aprilia Racing Team’s Sylvain Guintoli to lead the 2013 WSBK points battle. Sykes now has 235 points after seven of 15 rounds, six ahead of the Frenchman Guintoli. Sykes will surely want to keep up the momentum to earn his first-ever World SBK title, especially after finishing only a half-point behind last year’s champion, the now retired Max Biaggie (Aprilia Racing Team).

Joining Sykes on the race-one podium was Althea Racing Aprilia’s Davide Giugliano and Aprilia Racing’s Eugene Laverty, respectively. In race two it was Pata Honda’s Jonathan Rea and Guintoli.

Attached below are video highlights of 2013 Imola SBK, which also features highlights from Imola World Supersport (Mahi Racing Team India Kawasaki’s Kenan Sofuoglu).
