Media hysteria as Sykes becomes first rider to come from Superpole 1 to take pole.

Michele Pirro shows up to take the spot of injured Luca Scassa on the Ducati "guest" bike. The MotoGP test rider out-qualified Chaz Davies.

Bears mentioning: in 2009, Ben Spies hadn't even seen many of the WSBK tracks and didn't even know for sure where Magny Cours was, and he took many poles.

Sykes was Spies' teammate.

'They paved paradise and put up a parking lot'. The Circuit van Drenthe was once considered 'the cathedral' of racing but since they changed the track to put up a family fun center (no, really) and parking lot it's basically just another track now. On this site a leisure park is being constructed with a car park offering 8,000 parking spaces. This new leisure park is called TT World. Tip top entertainment for the whole family is one of the goal...

World championship points leader Rossi stops by the pre-event press conference wearing a sponsor cap and wool scarf. It's a tidy combo that keeps his sponsor happy and his neck warm.

Dani Pedrosa does his 'dead man walking' jaunt to the press conference.

Lorenzo, with four wins on the trot, waves to the photographers.

Scott Redding smiles while a fan takes a photo with his phone.

Trust us: the one rider you'd want to make a road trip with is Pol Espargaro.
