Of the 24 MOTOGP Riders that will line up the DutchTT Assen circuit on sunday, Valentino Rossi has the most success in Assen
Nine wins in total with seven of the nine recorded in the premier class. Also, Assen could be said to be a memorable for Rossi as it was where he had his 100th win in 2009, also his first win in two years of winning draught in 2013 as well as his last corner cravel trap manoveur after a contact with Marc Marquez to beat Marquez to the line last year.
Assen is a Historical track as it is the ONLY track on the MotoGP™ Calendar to have hosted a Grand Prix since 1949, as well as hosting Racing on Saturdays. This year for the first time in over 60 years, The Cathedral as the circuit is fondly called will host a Grand Prix Race on a Sunday. Welcome to MotoGP’s oldest circuit.
After a remarkable performance by “The Doctor” at Catalan Grand Prix that got him back into the Championship title challenge after a disastrous Mugello, Rossi is ready for the contest at the Cathedral
Valentino Rossi: “I used this short break to rest a bit and now I’m ready for the next race. I love Assen, it is one of my favourite tracks, but that doesn’t mean anything because every race this year is very open and very uncertain. We just have to stay focused, try to work in the best way possible and see what happens. In Barcelona we had a good race and also the test went well. I really want to get back on track and prepare for the upcoming race with my team.”
