ANDREA MAKES A NICE TOP TEN FINISH IN ASSEN
ALEIX ALSO IN THE POINTS JUST TWO WEEKS AFTER HIS ACCIDENT IN BARCELONA
With a race of pure consistency, Iannone rode his Aprilia RS-GP to a top-ten finish in the GP of Holland. Starting from the seventh row, Andrea lapped consistently with very good times, in certain stages of the race even at the same times as the fastest riders on the track. His performance in the race and a rediscovered feeling with his RS-GP allowed him to claw his way up no fewer than ten positions and take home the best placement yet of his budding history with Aprilia.
Aleix Espargaró rode a great race with heart and courage, making a very positive finish, considering the two fractures to his left leg and the damage to the ligaments in his knee, suffered in the Barcelona accident, which hindered him throughout the weekend. Despite decidedly difficult mobility in the saddle, Aleix gritted his teeth, staying with the group battling for the top ten and taking home a nice twelfth place in the end, earning more championship points.
