Blog | Simon great 2nd Race in Assen


Hey everyone

Last weekend in Assen was quiet positive.

Again, Assen was a new track for me so in the first free practice I learnt the track, the track is a very fast so it was quiet difficult at the beginning. I ended up 16th.

For the 1st Qualifying I was too focused on the lap times and less on my riding style so the lap times weren’t getting better, I ended up in 14th position, but quiet far from the top riders.

In the 2nd qualifying, I once again didn’t manage to find a good pace to do good lap-times. I kept making mistakes and ran wide in the corners. Luckily on my last lap I put all my concentration together and I finally did a good lap time, which placed me in 10th position. I was happy about it, but I was quiet concerned that I only did one fast lap.

For the 1st race, my start wasn’t too bad, in the 1st lap I was running around the 6th place, but I started to make a lot of mistakes, my concentration was not completely in the race so I kept losing places, and finished 13th.

In Race 2, again my start wasn’t too bad, starting from the 1st corner I knew I would do a good race, I started to overtake riders lap by lap, unfortunately while I was 2nd, in the last chicane I missed my braking point and ran straight, I lost a few places but I stayed concentrated and I tried to keep a good pace to stay with the leaders and I finally finished in 4th place. I was very happy about that because I finally managed to do a good result in a Race.

Now I can’t wait to be in Sachsenring and I hope I will do a good result.

See you,
