Pol Espargaro set the pace in the first Moto2™ practice session ahead of the Iveco TT Assen. The Tuenti HP 40 rider led championship leader Scott Redding and Dominique Aegerter as Assen witnessed its first spots of rain during the event.

It was a chilly start to the seventh race meeting of the season, but the teams and riders were pleased that forecast rain held off until the last ten minutes of the session.

Espargaro’s best effort came in the form of 1’38.988, with Marc VDS Racing Team’s Redding just over a tenth of a second down. Behind Aegerter (Technomag carXpert), Johann Zarco (Came Iodaracing Project) and Xavier Simeon (Desguaces La Torre Maptaq) completed the top five, while Britain’s Gino Rea commenced his second race weekend of the season as a wildcard entry.

The second Moto2™ practice session will start at 3:05pm local time (GMT +2).
