Assen The Next Opportunity For Rea And Sykes


KRT's Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes will arrive at one of their joint favourite circuits this coming weekend as the fourth round of the FIM Superbike World Championship is set to take place at historic Assen, located in the north of the Netherlands.

Both riders have won races there before ‰ÛÒ Rea five times and Sykes once in his championship winning year of 2013. And both are keen to add to their haul of race wins at the unique Circuit van Drenthe on the latest-specification Ninja ZX-10R.

Rea enters Assen hot on the heels of another strong display at the front of the field since he joined Kawasaki this winter. He took a win and then a second place at Motorland Aragon last weekend to extend his championship lead over Leon Haslam to 26 points. He has four wins and two second places in all so far in 2015 and a career total of 19 WSB race victories.

‰ÛÏI am really excited about Assen because it is a circuit I really enjoy and I have had some good success at in the past." Rea commented. "This year with a new team and a new bike we need to see how we perform on Friday but Assen is somewhere I think we can try and win again.

"There is always close racing there, which I am looking forward to. It is cool to go there each year because there are always a lot of British fans that make the trip over to watch the race.

"I have some family coming as well. Aside from Phillip Island this is going to be the race that most feels a little bit like home because I have spent so much time there in the past.‰Û
