MCE British Superbike Championship leader Shane 'Shakey' Byrne is determined to put a stop to title rival Alex Lowes' winning streak at Assen this weekend.

The legendary Dutch circuit hosts the opening round of the Showdown this weekend and Byrne, who is joined in the team by Japanese star Noriyuki Haga - who has taken over Keith Farmer's seat in Paul Bird's outfit - is gunning for a repeat of his victory at Assen in 2012.

"This is it; we have worked hard all season to be in the best possible shape to try and win that fourth title so you can be sure I certainly won't be giving up now," said the three-time BSB champion.
