Kazuki Masaki Assen

Blog | Kazuki Masaki on the podium again and again

Hi everyone!

Here's an update on what's been happening with my last 2 rounds.

Round 1

The 1st race in Assen, (Conditions were dry) I managed to come in 2nd place, the eventual winner was just too hard to catch up to as he was miles ahead! So I decided to stay with the main pack and push for 2nd place which I could achieve.

Prior to the 2nd race in Assen It had rained so we used rain tires, eventually the track dried out.The winner from race 1 pulled away from the pack again and got an uncatchable lead so I stayed with the main group. During the last 3 laps of the race, it started raining again so I thought it would be wise to go for the race points and I settled for 3rd place.

Round 2

I came tenth in the 1st race in Sachsenring, the weather was atrocious and it rained throughout the race, I eased off the pace as the conditions were very difficult to ride in for me, the result was a 10th place finish.

Race conditions were dry for the 2nd race, I started in 9th position and gave it everything I had! I pushed very hard to catch up with the leaders and battled it out with two others riders, towards the end of the race, my tires were totally worn out so I couldn't go as fast as I wanted so got a 3rd place finish again.

I'm looking forward to racing in Brno.

See you there!!
