Kallio cuts gap with 125cc victory

Mika Kallio cut the gap between himself and Alvaro Bautista with a last-gasp win in the 125cc A-Style TT Assen. In an exciting end to the lower class race, Kallio passed Sergio Gadea and title-rival Bautista on the final chicane, with the latter taking a trip onto the grass and unable to overtake his team-mate.

Lukas Pesek suffered a serious setback as a result of mechanical problems, with both he and team-mate Nico Terol having to give up their grid positions due to mechanical problems, the former starting from last and the latter from the pits. Pesek recovered to power his way to fifth in the race, behind Simone Corsi and ahead of Hector Faubel, Mattia Pasini and Thomas Luthi. Pablo Nieto and Raffaele De Rosa completed the top ten.
