Tom Sykes crowned World Superbike Champion

Dainese's Tom Sykes was crowned World Superbike champion at the last round at Jerez, Spain.

Going into the final round Sykes knew that he didn't need a race victory to secure the title. In race one he rode to a solid third place giving him a large enough advantage to make
his championship win safe. Sykes received his trophy and was awarded the World Championship title still with the second 21-lap race to complete.

Gathering his emotions for race two Sykes led for 13-laps but eventually crossed the line in second place, with a final championship advantage of 23-points. Not only did the Dainese rider score a new Jerez lap record, but he led for 255-laps over the whole season - more than twice the total of the next best rider.
