Marc Marquez & Dani Pedrosa ready to keep show going in Netherlands

 In MotoGP, News


Assen has hosted a MotoGP World Championship event every year since 1949, and this weekend will be the scene of the eighth round of the 2014 World Championship. Marc Marquez remains on an historic run of victories this season, and took second place in Assen last year.

Teammate Dani Pedrosa made clear in Barcelona that he has fully recovered from his forearm issues and wants to be back in the fight for victories. After the post-race test, both arrive in the Netherlands on a high.

As is the tradition at the Dutch TT, the races will be held a day earlier than usual on Saturday, with free practice moving to Thursday and qualifying on Friday

Marc Marquez
“We are still in enjoying a really good momentum but we know it can’t go on forever! I really like Assen and have had some good results in the lower categories, and last year we took second in my first visit there on the MotoGP machine. The weather is always unpredictable there so we will, as always, work hard from the first session to find a good setup.”

Dani Pedrosa
“It was good to be back at the front and fighting in Catalunya! I’m looking forward to going to Assen and hope I’m one step fitter again as last year I didn’t really have a good race, so I hope to improve. The weather is usually tricky so you must make the most of any dry track time. I like the track but it’s important to find a good setting and feeling with the tyres as there are a few very fast corners.”
