Top 10 for Leon Camier and MV Agusta Reparto Corse at Assen

Leon Camier closes Race 1 in the top 10 at the Assen TT Circuit, after coming back 8th positions after being damaged by another rider who went off the track. Jacobsen qualifies in 2nd place after the Tissot-Superpole2 and get the first row for the WorldSSP race tomorrow.

WorldSBK – FP3, SP2, Race1
A good but cold weather welcomed the second day of the race weekend on the TT Circuit Assen. Leon Camier, who got the 6th time in the combined timesheet on the opening day, in today’s Tissot-Superpole2 took his MV Agusta F4RC in P11 on the starting grid.

At the start of Race1, when the lights went off on Assen’s straight line Camier is very quick but he was forced to go off the track, getting back to the 18th position, damaged by another rider who went off the track. The 29-years-old MV Agusta rider starts his comeback and, despite the bad feeling with the cold asphalt of the TT Circuit Assen, he can quickly reach the Top 10, then closing the race in 10th position, consolidating the 9th position in Championship Standing.

Leon Camier #2 WorldSBK – To be honest I expected a better result for today’s race but the rear tyre, which is a crucial point here at Assen, it has been drastically consumed because of the very low temperature, causing me a lot of troubles at the end of the race. Tomorrow we can definitely make a good step forward, because except for the tyres, the bike was working pretty good today.
