Baz: “Only two points separate me from Barbera”

Baz: “Only two points separate me from Barbera”

Loris Baz closes the gap in the Open class standings to leader Hector Barbera at the Motul TT Assen.

Baz, 15th on the grid, had a good start and he was able to get behind his teammate Bradl and very close to the points. On the sixth lap he took the lead of the Open class and kept it until the end when he crossed the line in 15th place. For the French rider this is the second win of the season in the Open class. The point collected in Assen consolidates his second place in the standings and further shortens the gap toBarbera.

Loris Baz: “It was a tough race, but I'm happy with the end result. I struggled in the first half of the race, I could not push as I wanted, but the more laps, the better was my pace. In the end I was very fast and I finished first in the Open class. I’m pretty satisfied if I think that until yesterday afternoon my health condition was badly affected by an intestinal virus. Only two points separate me from Barbera and this is one more reason to be happy. Thanks to all the team and the sponsors for their support: we can now go for the lead of the Open class.”
