Pasini and Talmacsi share the lead

After the Gauloises TT Assen, two riders share the lead of the 125cc World Championship: Totti Top Sport NGS' Mattia Pasini and Red Bull KTM's Gabor Talmacsi.

Pasini arrived in the Netherlands with a small lead on Thomas Lüthi and Mika Kallio, but a thrilling Dutch TT saw Talmacsi catching up with the Italian by taking his second win of the season (it's worth mentioning that the two joint leaders are the only riders in the class to have managed to take two wins since the start of the season).

With nine rounds to go it's still too early to make any prediction as the Championship appears more open than ever. Behind Pasini and Talmacsi, tied on 100 points, Thomas Lüthi is just 11 points adrift and Mika Kallio holds fourth overall with 82 points. The next round of the 125cc World Championship will be held at Donington Park on July 24th.
