Blog | Jorge with two great podiums in Assen | 2013

Hi all,

Last weekend were the races of the RBRC at Assen, the Netherlands, it was a great weekend for me, as I got two podiums.

In Friday's race I tried to keep with the front group, but was struggling with the front. When Scott crashed I tried to make my own pace and keep the group behind me under control, to finish in 3rd position. On the last lap Stefano also crashed so I finished in a very good 2nd position.

For Saturday's race, everything was more difficult, I was all the race fighting in the front group, in the first part of the race I tried to get away from the group, but it was almost impossible, because I got lot of problems in the front fork and I couldn't make good laps and get a gap.

At the end of the race I was fighting a lot with Scott for the 3rd place and it was difficult to keep him behind, so I couldn't try to overtake Hanika and Manzi. I finished in a very good 3rd place.

I'm very happy with the results of this weekend, I got a lot of points for the championship, I hope to still improving during the season, the championship is not over.

See you soon,
