Assen Grand Prix: Fenati second in the race

Second once again after an amazing race. Romano Fenati gave life to a great fight at Assen circuit. At the end, just the Spanish Canet succeeded in doing the last corner correctly and staying in front of him. After one victory and three second places, the rider from Ascoli is third in the general standing and recovered 13 points on Mir. The defibrillator, in the box, would have been useful even for the race of Jules Danilo. The French rider fought until the end and was author of an exciting race, always close and even in front of his teammate. A great result for the whole team.

Romano Fenati: "It was a great race, the first podium here at Assen. In the last few laps we struggled a lot. At the end, McPhee, Canet and Mir have fought before the long straight and left me the best trajectory. Then, I tried to stay ahead. I knew I hadn't to be first at the last corner but I thought I had enough gap. I didn't consider the wind and Canet was very fast in overtaking me. Anyway, I tried. I am very happy, we recovered points on Mir and we'll try to do better at Sachsenring... ".

Jules Danilo: "It was a very positive weekend, I am happy of the feeling back with the bike, after Mugello and Barcelona, which were not so good. At the beginning of the race I lost the contact with the group ahead, but when Canet went in front of this group the pace was faster and we succeeded in going ahead once again. In the last few laps there was a great fight: I was third but I knew that it was not the right position for the few last corners. In the last lap. few corners to the end, Romano and Canet braked very strong in front of me and I did a small mistake which made me lose the podium. Obviously it is frustrating having lost the podium but we have to take the positive side. I know my potentialities now and I can stay always there".
