2014 Assen Moto2 QP: Cream Rises In Close Session

Full Recap and Results Below:

The rain that fell during the MotoGP qualifying session dispersed for Moto2 as Tito Rabat took yet another pole position for the Dutch TT at Assen. The Spaniard remained patient throughout to hold off Suisse rider Dominique Aegerter. Aegerter was a tenth shy from taking his first ever pole after getting a decent tow from Rabat midway through proceedings. Ever impressive British rookie Sam Lowes claimed his second front row start, setting the third fastest time. 

Second Marc VDS rider Mika Kallio heads up row two alongside a resurgent Takaaki Nakagami and Italian charger Simone Corsi. After his podium position in Barcelona Johann Zarco will start tomorrow's race from seventh place ahead of Maverick Vinales and Ricky Cardus. The ruthlessly competitive nature of the Moto2 class was emphasised by the top twenty riders being separated by a little over a second.

My fellow Americans....

What's up with my men Josh Herrin? I mean, seriously I thought he was going to be top 10 at least!! He's totally amorphous, can't seem to get his feet back, or is it that it's really out of his league?

27th almost 1.8 seconds from the front? Dude!?
