A day full of racing, that is what the fans at Assen got this Sunday – thanks in no part to the snow that fell on the Saturday before. Back on the track and ready to ride, WorldSBK fans were treated to some good racing at The Cathedral, despite the names in the Top 3 not changing.
If there is on thing that we have learned from the 2019 season so far, it is that the assumptions from 2018 and before are completely up for grabs. The other lesson is that the Ducati Panigale V4 R is the real deal.
Sunday’s results mean that it is eleven races in a row for Alvaro Bautista, which is the most successful start ever recorded to any World Superbike season.
Never really rated that highly in the MotoGP paddock, Bautista is shining in WorldSBK, and is certainly the man to beat. What will the win tally look like in three weeks’ time, when WorldSBK heads to Italy and races at Imola?
