SEPANG: British riders Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes will be going all out to maintain the winning momentum for the Kawasaki Racing Team in the Malaysian round of the FIM Superbike World Championship at Sepang Circuit this weekend.

Rea and Sykes head into the 10th round of the championship in first and second places in the overall standings. There are two races in each of the 13-round championship.

Rea is on top with 407 points while 2013 champion Sykes is behind on 282 points with three rounds to go.

The 28-year-old Rea had a stellar first season with Kawasaki, finishing in the top three in 18 races and collecting 11 race wins to date.

 He was sixth in both races at Sepang last year while riding for the PATA Honda team and is looking forward to claiming a podium spot this Sunday.
