World Superbike standings after the first race at Assen:
Assen, The Netherlands
Twenty-one dry laps of a cold and windy Assen and the riders don't have much dry data from this weekend. Report and results follow.
A 30km/h wind blew the rain clouds away for World Supersport qualifying. Anthony West would miss the session after being declared unfit after a crash yesterday. Report and results follow.
A cold and windy morning's qualifying, but mercifully without rain at the start. All four riders that didn't qualify in the timed sessions yesterday were able to put in times in this morning's session to allow them into Superpole. Report and results follow.
Over a second quicker than anyone else, Kenan Sofuoglu set the quickest time of the weekend in the morning's untimed session. The track conditions allowed him to go quicker than the morning's Superbike times.
The fifteen-minute untimed session gave riders a chance to get six or seven wet laps in and Davide Giugliano ended the session ahead of Tom Sykes and Sylvain Guintoli.
