The globetrotting super beings who race Super Bike are competing in the world championships.
Having just wrapped up May 14 at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, the racers will next travel to Donington Park in Great Britain.
Watching Super Bike is like watching a group of highly skilled show offs on bikes that are like high octane pieces of candy roar across a Grand prix-style track while fans loaded in every sense cheer and shout for their efforts.
Since 1988, riders have been competing in this sport on essentially stock bikes that have been overhauled to perform to magnificent levels of speed and handling.
The contest involves a series of rounds held on permanent racing facilities. Each round has two races and the results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships.
What is there not to love?
Even better, moving into the Donington Park circuit, it’s Britain’s own Tom Sykes, racing for team Kawasaki out front, having bested all his competitors in Malaysia.
It’s been mostly the British dominating the season since Thailand and Australia, when only a Frenchman, Michael van der Mark, and an Italian, Davide Guigliano, made any showing at all.
It seems the British enjoy their Super Bikes.
