Following the Catalan Grand Prix, the World Championship this week moves to the Assen circuit known as “The Cathedral” of motorcycle racing. In Moto3, Alex Rins and Alex Marquez placed second and fourth, respectively, in Catalonia and have been standouts in recent races.

Following success at the most recent Grand Prix, Alex Rins rides at Assen for the second time in his career. He placed sixth in last season’s Moto3 race and wants to improve further on that performance. Alex Marquez debuts at the tricky, fast Assen track, looking to show once again his talent for adaptation in the Moto3 class.

Alex Rins
“The next race is Assen, at a circuit that I particularly like. I remember last year we struggled a bit to reach the leading group, but I think that this season we are stronger and that we can have a good race. It being a small circuit, there are sure to be many riders in the leading group – especially if Folger recovers from his injury and returns to action.”

Alex Marquez
“I’ve been to Holland at least four times to watch my brother. From what I’ve seen, it is a fairly flat and complicated track. I know that the first part of the circuit is a little slow, but then you have the fast section which is very nice to ride –especially the last sector and the last chicane, which is where many races have been decided. I am told that it is a little easier than Mugello, but that also depends on the rider. We have to go with the same mentality with which we have approached the last few races, and I’m sure that we will do well. Fast corners are good for my riding style, so we’ll see if we can make the most of that.”
