2019 Moto2 Dutch TT Preview

Moto2 will be in action at Assen for the eighth round of the season, alongside Moto3 and MotoGP.

On form

Alex Marquez is on a good run of form having won the last three Grand Prix which has helped him take a seven point lead in the championship.

Another Spanish rider in form is Jorge Navarro who has finished on the podium in four of the last five races, the latest of those podium finishes coming at the last race in Catalunya where he finished third.

Also on a strong run of form is Moto2 rookie, Enea Bastianini who has finished outside the top ten only once so far this season (at Jerez) and recorded his highest finish in the class in the previous round.

In need of a result

Having started the season with back to back wins, Lorenzo Baldassarri needs to put together a run of point scoring finishes having retired from three of the last five races.
