Assen (NED) - April 30th 2017
The grandstands filled at the Assen circuit, the public did not miss the appointment with the Dutch race, the circuit is really one of the most sophisticated tracks in the world.
Roman, after some difficulties on Friday, surprised everyone in the race, able to excite with an incredible comeback from the fifteenth to the seventh position, and with a last lap of fear, has, in the last, overtaked Laverty on the checkered flag, crowning a wonderful result.
Roman Ramos 40 (WSBK race 1; 7th):
Today it was wonderful for us to get this seventh position and the chance to start tomorrow 4th on the grid is even more beautiful and important...what can I want more? We know that will be difficult to stay in the head positions and we do not have the pace to do it, but I will try to stay close to them as much as possible and give my maximum in every corner! Returning to the race, the team made a magic between the warm up and the race and the bike was perfect. Thank you so much for all the people who wrote me and supported me at all times.
Roman Ramos 40 (WSBK race 2; 11th):
Is exciting to start from the second row. I managed to turn well at the first curve, keeping the 6th position for almost all the first lap, but Rea, Chaz and Sykes had an incredible pace and I had to give up and trying to set my pace. In the warm up we tried a different front tyre and convinced me to use it in the race, but after only 4 laps I lost the feeling and could not force the entrance to the curve, so we could do even better, but I’m anyway happy about the positive week end. I can not miss the thanks to my team, as always fantastic and able to surprise me with their work
