Sykes stars at National Bike Show

RIZLA SUZUKIS Tom Sykes will be attending the National Bike Show at Manchester Central (formerly known as G-MEX) tomorrow, Saturday 5th January.

22-year old Sykes from Huddersfield put in some impressive times during the Rizla Suzuki test held at Calafat in Spain during the early part of December. With one test completed and another one coming up soon Sykes is working on staying fit and motivated but still has time to greet his fans at the show.

Ive only been to the National Bike Show once before and that was years ago, said Tom. I was a bike mad little lad and my Grandad took me along. It is a good show to go to as it has a very relaxed atmosphere.

Tom will be on the Suzuki stand between 11am and 3pm, he is more than happy to sign autographs and chat to any Rizla Suzuki fans.

Sykes said: Ive not done many shows but Ill have to say I really enjoyed the NEC show as it gave me a chance to talk to people. I prefer to talk to folk rather than just sit there signing posters. On race weekends it is difficult to find the time and you arent necessarily in the right frame of mind for chatting to fans. You only get pit lane walkabout and that is mainly spent signing. The shows are more relaxed and I enjoy that aspect of it.

The National Bike Show runs from the 4th 6th January 10am to 5.30pm, tickets on the door cost 12 for Adults, 6 for Children and OAPs. For further updates on the Rizla Suzuki team please visit
