The Real Man of Steel Returns

Assen (The Netherlands), 29th June 2013

Yamaha Factory Racing rider Jorge Lorenzo delivered a superhuman effort this morning, taking part in the MotoGP Warm Up after a medical check cleared him to ride. Despite being in obvious pain following surgery to his left collarbone just over 24hrs ago the reigning World Champion was able to gradually build up a competitive pace and even threatened to take the top spot in the last seconds but was denied by traffic.

Lorenzo wasn’t the only one to impress in the Warm Up, teammate Valentino Rossi was also on blistering form, wrapping up the session as the fastest rider, the Italian clearly continuing to enjoy his new found confidence in the YZR-M1 under braking.

2013 Assen MotoGP Friday Round Up: Earned Poles, Racing Lotteries And Lorenzo's Reasons For Racing

What an intriguing weekend the 83rd running of the Dutch TT at Assen has turned out to be. (Well, I say weekend, it's still Friday, but in any racing paddock, the weekend starts once bikes roll out for the first practice, and ends when the final press conference of the day is completed.) The story lines are plentiful, made possible by mixed conditions, low grip and a barrel load of ambition.

First, there's the MotoGP polesitter. Cal Crutchlow took his first ever pole in the class on Friday, with a perfectly-timed lap to blast ahead of Marc Marquez and earn himself a Tissot watch. He left it to the very last lap, but cut it very fine indeed. He crossed the finish line with just 3 seconds left on the session clock, giving him a final attempt at pole. He had worked out he would make it across the line for one last shot by looking at the sector times displayed on the digital dashboard, but when he exited the GT chicane and saw the starter already out with the checkered flag, he had gotten a little nervous.
