ALCANIZ, Spain – Reigning World Superbike champion Tom Sykes claimed his first pole of the young season aboard his Kawasaki Racing Team machine ahead of his teammate Loris Baz Saturday at Motorland Aragon.

In a restarted Superpole 1 after Jeremy Guarnoni (MRS Kawasaki) suffered a technical problem, Toni Elias (Red Devils Aprilia) and Leon Camier (BMW Motorrad Italia) were the fastest within the session and joined the already seeded riders for the final 15 minute shoot-out.

At the end of the session it was Sykes that just held on to secure the pole ahead of teammate Baz and Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team), who completed the top three.

In tomorrow’s races, row two will be led by Davide Giugliano (Ducati Superbike Team), who will be joined by Jonathan Rea (PATA Honda World Superbike Team) and Chaz Davies (Ducati Superbike Team)

After making it through into Superpole 2, Leon Camier (BMW Motorrad Italia) was the leading EVO category rider, qualifying 11th overall in his first race with his new team.
