There is one reason why Sykes may eventually move toward MotoGP, that being the direction of WSBK rules. "I don't agree with the direction the rules have taken in WSBK," Sykes said in a past interview. "It's definitely heading toward Superstock racing. I've worked all my life to be a Superbike rider, and all of sudden the changes we can make have become minimal. It's almost like racing for dummies,” he adds.
