Assen (Holland), 19 April 2015 - The finishing order for the two Superbike races at Assen were identical, putting on a lively show for all the fans that came out to the Dutch track.
For Aprilia Racing Team - Red Devils it was an exciting Sunday with Leon Haslam in the leading pack and Jordi Torres riding two great comeback races after starting from the third row of the grid.
Haslam battled no-hold-barred in the pack that decided the podium, managing several times to close the gap behind the leaders and entertaining the fans with a series of spectacular scuffles. Especially in Race 2, where the English rider's pace at about 10 laps from the end seemed to promise an attack for a podium finish. Only front tyre wear, particularly stressed both by the characteristics of the circuit and his riding style, kept Leon from finishing on the podium, making him settle for two fourth place finishes.
This confirms Haslam's hold on second place in the overall Rider standings, the same position that Aprilia holds in the Manufacturer rankings.
