Pol Espargaro targets top 5 at Assen

 In MotoGP, News


Monster Yamaha Tech3’s Pol Espargaro will confidently ride with full intent of clinching glory in the 8th round of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship at the legendary Assen track for the highly anticipated Iveco Daily TT Assen this week.

The infamous Dutch circuit known as the Cathedral is the only round to have consistently hosted a world motorcycle Grand Prix since its creation in 1949 where the race was held on public roads, before its transformation into the modern track in 1955.

The twisting 4542 metre circuit features 6 left corners as well as 12 right with a series of quick flowing bends and it’s fast nature always ensures a racing spectacle.

The event is a firm favourite for both riders and fans alike, where the huge enthusiastic crowd creates a magical atmosphere for the legendary Saturday race.

Pol Espargaro will be looking to hunt down and inch closer to the leading factory bikes at his first visit to the Dutch circuit on a MotoGP bike. Having attained some highly impressive results so far in his rookie season, the reigning 2013 Moto2 world champion will be aiming to battle to another top five result.

Pol Espargaro
“I am looking forward to getting the racing underway at this special circuit in the Netherlands this week. We had a really positive test day after the Catalunya Grand Prix which has given me a further confidence boost ahead of this round and for sure I am very keen to see the results of our experiments at the test in action. Last year the Dutch TT was a really strong event for me where I won the Moto2 race from pole position and although it may be hard to emulate that this year, I still aim to get close to the leading riders. Realistically, I am targeting to be in the top 5 again as I know this is fully achievable and even though the weather can be a bit tricky, I am ready to race in Assen.”
