Blog | Oscar Gutierrez with double Assen podium

Hi people!

I arrived at home on Sunday night night from Assen and I was too tired because we were all the day travelling without a stop.

On Monday I started to train as always, and also preparing the next round that will be next week at the Sachsenring.

This last race in Assen wasn't too difficult for me because last year I had a bad races and this year was a little bit easier because it wasn't my first time.

On the first day we had 2 free practice sessions and QP. Everything turned out the right way.

The second day we had one race, I didn't start so well but immediately I got into the lead group. At lap 4 Olly crashed and I had to go wide to avoid him and the leading pack escaped. I had to catch the third place, then I passed and I started to push and took a gap.

The second race went better, I was battling for second position with Fabio and Enzo all the way until the last lap. Finally with 3 corners to go the front tyre was sliding a lot and I lost some tenths of a second. With this, Fabio caught my slipstream and he passed me.

I'm very happy because all the weekend went very well and I enjoyed a lot riding my KTM and also to seeing all the people that were watching the race, Thanks! :)

See you next week!!
