Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) was back on the podium and fighting for the win at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, and the reigning Champion is hoping for much of the same at the very different TT Circuit Assen. After a positive test day after the Catalan GP that saw him go fastest, the number 93 is back on track.
A winner at Assen in 2014 and narrowly missing out the year after, Marquez also took P2 last season in torrential rain - with conditions always a factor to consider. The temperature will also likely be lower than Barcelona, and the ever-changing landscape of the Championship and shuffling pack means Marquez is squarely focused on preparation for whatever the weekend brings. Now on 93 podiums in the World Championship, the number 93 will be looking for another:
Marc Marquez: “We’re coming off a positive race and a promising day of testing in Catalunya, so we’re looking forward to getting back on the bike and to continuing on the same level in the next race. I like Assen. We’ve had some exciting races there, and many good memories. Of course the weather is always unpredictable and makes things change very quickly, so we must be ready to adapt as we did in 2014 and last year. That, coupled with the fact that every race this season also seems quite unpredictable, means we’ll have to keep totally focused and work particularly hard beginning Friday morning to find a good setup for our bike and tyres, with the target of fighting for the podium in the race.”
