ASSEN TT: THE RAIN AND THE OUTSIDERS...
29 June 2003 | News
Rapidly changing weather made a wet TT as the outsiders shone.
500 cc class: 2nd place Biaggi, 3rd place Rossi. In the 125 class, the 2nd place went to P. Nieto.
The protagonist of the Assen race was undoubtedly the rain, which strongly conditioned the results as it came and went.
The Dainese all champs made winning tactical choices to glean useful results for the championship points rather than risk spills.
The strategy proved effective, given that Rossi, Poggiali and Pedrosa all remain at the top of their respective classes.
The next race will be run at Donington Park, a decisive round in the international motorcycle championship.
