Pradita To Learn From Gibernau Advice

Doni Tata Pradita heads to Assen for the seventh round of the Moto2 World Championship this week with the advice of former MotoGP star Sete Gibernau ringing in his ears. The Indonesian rider met up with Gibernau in Barcelona and the Spaniard was happy to give him a few tips and set him some realistic goals for the season. Doni is determined to learn and the team is sure he will be able to put Gibernau's advice into practice.

Doni Tata Pradita “The goal at Assen is to make up for a bad result in Barcelona, which was very disappointing. Whilst we were in Spain I was lucky enough to meet Sete Gibernau and I am sure that with the advice he gave me I will be able to improve my performances. It is always important to listen to others and then try to put their advice into practice, especially a rider with the experience of Sete. Listening to what he had to say, our goal of finishing in the points feels like it is not an impossible task.”

Fausto Gresini “I am happy that Doni had the chance to speak to Sete and I think the advice of an expert rider like Gibernau can help Doni make important progress. Pradita is a hard-working rider and he is always open to suggestions so I think we will soon start to see him make notable improvements.”

Loris Capirossi's stunning victory in the 250cc race at Assen in 1999 is written into the fabric of the great TT circuit, the Italian beating countryman Valentino Rossi in a memorable finish. It is without doubt the happiest memory for Team Gresini at Assen, although there are other notable results such as Emilio Alzamora's third place in the rain in 2001 – a result repeated by Roberto Rolfo the following year. The team were celebrating victory again in 2003 thanks to Sete Gibernau, who almost repeated the result in 2004 only to be beaten to the line by just 0.4 seconds by Rossi. In 2005 Marco Melandri added to the team's Dutch TT podium tally with second place, whilst Toni Elias picked up another one in Moto2 in 2010.


Assen has been a fixture on the MotoGP World Championship ever since the series was born back in 1949 and it has become known as 'The Cathedral' of motorcycle racing. The circuit began life in 1925 as a street course on the roads surrounding the current facility, with an event that to this day is known as the TT (Tourist Trophy) – like its sister event on the Isle of Man. The most recent modifications to the layout, completed in 2006, have left only traces of the original circuit. The city of Assen is the capital of the Drenthe region in Holland, having received city rights in 1809. However, it has strong prehistoric roots, with 52 of the country's 54 known megalithes being located in Drenthe. As in much of the country the bicycle is the most popular means of transport in Assen, which boasts up to 1400km of cycle paths around its rural boundaries.
