Former WorldSBK Champion Tom Sykes will remain with the BMW Motorrad team in 2020 after signing a deal extension.

Sykes will partner new-boy Eugene Laverty in a very strong squad which will also feature a fulyl-developed S1000RR next year.

“I’m proud to be continuing in to the 2020 season with the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team. After such a successful year so far with the all-new BMW S 1000 RR, which is still very early in its development, gives me great motivation moving forward,” said Sykes.

“I really enjoy the development part and we are certainly moving in a strong way. Of course, with the support from the whole of the team and the prestigious BMW brand my expectations for the 2020 season will certainly move higher and back to where I feel most natural.

“I will also take this moment to welcome Eugene on board. I’m looking forward to have him as a team-mate for 2020.”
