Assen 2017

Post by Fingernails »

That was a brilliant race.

While other people loved it, I thought the Moto3 race was confusing with too many challengers. The Moto2 race was, in my opinion, much better.

Great to see Nakagami competing at the front. I'd like to know how much of his improvement is due to the team, and how much is due to him. While the bikes are mostly spec Honda/Kalex bikes at the front (exception: KTM), Idemitsu does not appear to be a top team. Are they catching up, or is Nakagami riding at the front even though he doesn't have the support / backup that the others have?

When will Olivera win a race? Surely it must happen soon. First non-Kalex win since 2015?
