Description

After finishing sixth overall in 2007, his rookie season Tom Sykes joined the Rizla Suzuki Team to compete in the 2008 British Super Bike Championship. Partnered with Atsushi Watanbe the team found success in multiple races including wins for Sykes at both Oulton Park and Knock Hill and pole positions at both Cadwell Park and Mallory Park.

A strong field of riders won races during the season including Cal Crutchlow, Shane Byrne and Leon Haslam with the championship to be decided at the final race of the year, Shane Byrne riding a Ducati eventually crowned winner of the championship.

The No.66 bike of Tom Sykes that finished fourth for the season was prepared by the Crescent performance team with a standard Suzuki frame coupled to a Crescent racing prepared engine, Yoshimura gearbox and Showa Forks.   

 

Since being sold by the team to raise money for the following season the vendor has completed just five track days and has treated the bike to a full race spec service by Crescent performance. As an ex British Superbike contender it resembles a fantastic opportunity to own a race winning example with the potential to either race further or track day in many different events across Europe. This bike is offered with a paddock stand, a spare aluminum fuel tank and a signed and framed photo.
