Good progression at Assen for Bradl

Thursday, 28 June 2012

The Dutch track provided largely sunny and dry conditions for the first day of free practices at the slightly revamped surface which hosts the seventh round of the 2012 calendar.

LCR Honda racer Stefan Bradl had a difficult 2011 Moto2 race in Assen and he is not a big fan of the 4.542km track but he made a positive first appearance at "The Cathedral" circuit aboard his RC213V posting the 11th fastest lap time (1’35.337) in a very close afternoon session with 10 riders in less than half second.

"This morning we have struggled a lot with the bike and we were far away from our perfect set up and at the end of the first session I was a bit worried. I had no idea of what we should improve to be back in our standard shape. But in the second outing we made a good progression gaining much more confidence. The bike was easier to ride but I must improve on section one, which is the main issue at the moment. If you look at the classification we are only 11th but if you check the lap times we are very close to the top ten."
