Chesaux third at Assen!


EAB Ten Kate Junior Team rider Bastien Chesaux has scored a third place in today’s Superstock 600 race, at a sunny but windy and cold TT Circuit in the Netherlands. Because of a red flag situation in the first lap, the race was shortened to eight laps.

Chesaux had a decent start and was in third after a very hectic opening lap. The Swiss fought the entire race for the win, but in the last laps he lost a position and had to give everything for the third place.

Bastien Chesaux: “I almost won the race, so I'm  a little bit disappointed of course. On the other hand, it’s my second podium in a row and I’m second in the championship so I have to be satisfied after all. The team did a great job and I would like to thank the team for this weekend. Monza is next. Last year I scored my first podium at this very fast track so I’m really looking forward.”

David Mcfadden will start tomorrow’s Superstock 1000 race from seventeenth on the grid after a hard qualification. The South-African is still searching, together with his mechanics, for a good set-up of his Ten Kate Racing Products Honda Fireblade that suits his riding style. Yesterdays rain didn’t help him with this difficult and very complex process.

David Mcfadden: “It was a hard day. We have to find a solution for the bike and I have to improve as well. We’re working really hard and I’m confident that we’ll find a solution. Tomorrow’s race will be hard but I will give everything I have in the team’s home race.”
