German WSBK: Rostrum return top objective for Sykes

'I am ready go, I feel fit and I am fully recharged. I like the circuit in Germany and the Ninja ZX-10R has been strong there in the past' - Tom Sykes
Kawasaki star Tom Sykes is 'raring to go' as he seeks to return to the World Superbike podium this weekend at the Nurburgring in Germany following the summer break.

Sykes failed to finish on the rostrum at Silverstone after two hard races but the British ace is within striking distance of championship leader Sylvain Guintoli, who holds a 13-point lead at the top of the series.

The Nurburgring holds fond memories for Sykes, where he scored his maiden WSBK success in the rain in 2011.

“I am really excited about racing again this coming weekend in Germany. I spoke to my crew chief Marcel Duinker last night and a three-week break has been good for us,” he said.

“I have enjoyed my time at home and with the busy month we have coming up in September I have been doing some good training in readiness for three races in quick succession.

“I am ready go, I feel fit and I am fully recharged. I like the circuit in Germany and the Ninja ZX-10R has been strong there in the past so I am looking forward to this weekend.”

Five rounds of the championship remain following the cancellation of the scheduled November finale in India.
