About

Heading into his 10th full season in the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, Tom Sykes has as strong relationship with his Kawasaki Racing Team and will look at adding more trophies to his cabinet for 2018. Moving over to the paddock in 2007, Sykes began his career in the British Superbike Championship where he narrowly missed out on the title to Cal Crutchlow in 2006.

Missing out on the WorldSBK championship by half a point in 2012, he was able to secure the world title with the Provec squad in 2013. Following this success, he has been able to keep on winning for the team but has been unable to regain the crown. With 33 race wins for the Japanese manufacturer, Sykes has a strong feeling following winter testing and will look at fighting his team-mate Rea in 2018.
