Fantastic Podium For Scott Petruxs Dream Ends With The Red Flag


Overwhelming emotions for Octo Pramac Yakhnich in the DutchTT; characterized by the rain which on lap 16 forced the riders to return to the pits. Danilo Petrucci was leading, Scott Redding came in third with an impressive race pace.

The British rider did well to stay calm, and from lap 3, recovered positions that let him catch up to the leading group while the rain began to fall harder. Meanwhile, Petrux had a perfect race without making any mistakes letting him take the the lead in lap 14. After the red flag and the re-start, the rider Fiamme Oro, had to deal with a technical problem that forced him to retire. As in the first start, Scott could not keep the position, but had the merit to believe in it to go get Pol Espargaro and win his first podium with Octo Pramac Yakhnich. With 15 points won, Assen Scott rose to 14th place in the ranking of MotoGP with 32 points. Danilo, after three consecutive Top 10 remains with 24 points.

Espargaro Powers Through The Rain To Seize 4th At The Cathedral Of Speed


Monster Yamaha Tech3 team rider Pol Espargaro equalled his best result in the premier class with a 4th place finish in a drama filled and soaking wet Motul TT Assen in front of 105,000 passionate fans. The Spaniard leapt forward when the lights went out at the beginning of the wet race and he carefully navigated around the circuit on the first lap which he completed in 8th. Then, shortly after, Espargaro dropped back six positions yet, he stayed focused and stuck into a consistent pace, which allowed him to move up to 9th by the midway point as he steadily made progress. However, by that time, the weather conditions were considerably worse which lead to the Grand Prix being red flagged. A shortened sprint of 12 laps resumed shortly afterwards and he got straight back to work before concluding the opening lap in 6th. With a third of the total distance left to run, Espargaro slotted into the final podium position as he continued to push, before eventually crossing the line in 4th, closing an incredibly challenging round 8 battle.

Vierge And Vinales Battle Through Demanding Dutch Grand Prix


Tech3 Racing Team rider Xavi Vierge fought determinedly in the 8th round of the Moto2 World Championship today and finished in 18th after the weather disrupted the GP. The 18 year old began the Motul TT Assen from the ninth row after a challenging qualifying session. Despite still experiencing some pain from the injuries sustained in yesterday’s fall, he launched off the grid and elbowed his way through to 20th by the close of the first lap, having overtaken five riders. He set into a consistent and strong rhythm, which saw him elevate up two more places by the mid point. Then, Vierge continued pushing and dived inside Mattia Pasini on lap eighteen as the distance counted down. The unpredictable Dutch weather struck with five laps remaining and drops of rain started to fall, yet the former CEV race winner carried on his pace. However on the penultimate lap, the red flag was shown, which drew the event to a premature close due to the increasing rainfall which resulted in a 17th place finish for Vierge.
