Moto2™ championship leader Scott Redding topped the timesheets as several riders suffered incidents in the Assen Warm-Up session on Saturday morning. One of the fallers was this afternoon’s pole-sitter Pol Espargaro.

Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team) led the way with a lap time of 1’39.820, heading Desguaces La Torre Maptaq’s Xavier Simeon and Aspar Team Moto2’s Jordi Torres. Redding will start this afternoon’s race from third position on the grid.

Espargaro (Tuenti HP 40) suffered a low-speed lowside accident at Turn 1, but there was worse news for Mattia Pasini who was launched over the top of his NGM Mobile Racing machine which suffered heavy damage at the chicane. There was also an accident for Italtrans Racing Team’s Takaaki Nakagami, who collected the barriers coming into the chicane; the Japanese rider has suffered a broken left collarbone and will be unable to take part in the race.

The Moto2™ Iveco TT Assen begins at 1:20pm local time (GMT +2).
