3/3: Assen sets the stage for the finale of the half-time triple-header

One highlight follows the next! After Mugello and the Sachsenring, the next historic Grand Prix awaits the LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP team this weekend, from 23-25 June, at the Dutch TT in Assen. After highs in Moto3 and a run of bad luck in Moto2, the team is looking for new triumphs, both big and small.

Victory within reach and yet just missed again: This story repeated itself recently for Ayumu Sasaki, but with each race the young Japanese rider extended his dominance. Most recently, he almost took the start-finish victory at the Sachsenring. The 22-year-old only lacked a little bit. However, Sasaki has the best memories of the 4.54 km long Dutch circuit, because he took a brilliant victory a year ago and he is aiming for nothing less in the 20-lap race in 2023, which will start at 11:00 a.m. (CEST) on Sunday.

The Dutch TT is of course also something very special for local hero Collin Veijer, who has recently shown an incredible development. In front of his home crowd, the 18-year-old rookie hopes to secure a qualifying success similar to the last one at the Sachsenring, in order to be able to fight in the front riders' field in the race with another rocket start and score a lot of points.

Points would also be a welcome change for the two Moto2 riders Darryn Binder and Lukas Tulovic, after the South African was knocked out of the race twice in a row through no fault of his own and Lukas Tulovic, for his part, ended up out of the race two races in a row due to small mistakes. The frustration level was noticeably after the German Grand Prix, but the Kalex duo knows that the focus must only be forward and so both the 23-year-old German and the younger of the two Binder brothers start the heat battle of Assen with undiminished motivation, because temperatures of around 30°C are expected for the 22-lap race on Sunday at 12:15 (CEST).
