Sykes did OK on the Yamaha last year yet was dumped by them, similar to Toseland this year. Really hope he keeps his seat in 2011, and he can pay back Kawasaki (and Yamaha) by kicking Melandri's & Laverty's arses!

sykes at yamaha

i remember an interview with the wsb team manager, him stating how much he admires sykes and that he will be a great addition to the wsb team. a young up and coming rider, blah blah blah.  they soon changed their minds.   hope sykes gets a new contract for next year.
