SUNSHINE WELCOME THE MOTOGP RIDERS AT ASSEN

Assen, 24 June: the MotoGP circus moved to the north of the Netherlands this week end for the seventh round of the season at the Dutch historic circuit of Assen. With its great atmosphere and unique history Assen is one of the riders' favourite circuit even it has changed recently reducing the lap distance from 6.027km to 4.555km in 2005.

Riding the LCR Honda RC212V Randy De Puniet currently hold 9th place in the premier class points standing thanks to his good placements in the first part of the season. The Frenchman arrived in Assen determined to get closer to the front and has got clear ideas about his machine set up ahead the 26-lap race on Saturday.

De Puniet: "Assen is another amazing track on the MotoGP calendar. I like it very much although it was modified three years ago, which took away some of its character. I have been very fast at Assen in the past -- even last year I was fast there but in the beginning of the race Rossi hit me and I ran off the track into the gravel. The straights are not very long and the high corners required speed suit my riding style and my bike set-up. Considering the competitiveness of my machine package and my positive results at recent races I think we can again finish in the top ten this weekend."
