Yamaha World Supersport Team look to build championship lead in Assen

World Supersport rider Cal Crutchlow heads to Assen fresh from a strong victory in Valencia and looking to take it further with another win on the legendary Dutch circuit. The British rider showed top form in Spain, taking pole and following it with a flawless win. Although Crutchlow has never raced in Assen he has proved to be quick to learn new circuits and get on the pace quickly. Team-mate Fabien Foret comes to Assen looking to shake off a difficult start to the 2009 season and get back to form.

Cal Crutchlow, Yamaha World Supersport Team

"I've had a little look round the circuit now and I think it will suit our bike very well. I'm looking forward to taking on the challenge of going to another new circuit and seeing if we can keep the championship lead we've built up and building on it with another win."

Fabien Foret, Yamaha World Supersport Team

"I'm feeling ok, I'm not stressing after what has been a difficult start to the season. It's been pretty tough. I'm taking every race as it comes, so focusing just on Assen for now. I'm hoping everything starts to go my way again as I've not had so much luck so far."

Wilco Zeelenberg, Yamaha World Supersport Team Manager

"Assen is great as its kind of our home race. I think with the nice weather coming up we can expect a lot of exciting racing in Supersport. Cal has proved to be ready for any kind of track and hopefully Fabien will have more luck than in the first three rounds. I'm looking forward to it, it's nice to be there with lots of local fans watching us so it's a bit special."
