Simeon: “Assen can be considered my home Grand Prix”

Simeon: “Assen can be considered my home Grand Prix”

The Motul TT Assen is the closest Belgian Xavier Simeon will get to a home Grand Prix.

Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2’s Simeon crashed out of action in Barcelona on the very first lap of the race following a collision with another rider, will try to get back in the fight for the top positions encouraged by a positive day of test held last Tuesday, June 16th at Montmelo.

Xavier Simeon: “From a certain point of view, Assen can be considered my home Grand Prix, because is the track closest to Belgium! In addition, I like the track very much and last year we have been already really competitive. I have a great desire to return to fight for the podium and I think this could be the right opportunity: this season we have been fast in all tracks, even in those where we have been struggling during the 2014 campaign. It’s a good sign that brings us to Holland confident and aware that we can fight again for the top positions. We will give our best, as always!”
