Leon Camier 11th and 12th at Assen, Ryuichi Kiyonari in the points in Race12019-04-14 08:55
A completely dry, albeit still fairly cold day at Assen allowed the WorldSBK riders to stick to the revised Sunday race schedule which saw Race 1 kicking off at 11am, in place of the Superpole Race, and Race 2 at 2pm.
Leon Camier scored an eleventh-place finish in Race1 before crossing the line twelfth in Race 2, putting up a good fight against Laverty and Melandri for most of the time.
A recovering Ryuichi Kiyonari bravely finished Race 1 inside the points zone in 15th place before retiring five laps before the end of Race 2 as he was experiencing some set-up issues.

11TH (RACE 1) 12TH (RACE 2)
“For sure we want to do better, and we will keep working with that target in mind but all in all I honestly enjoyed the races today. I feel we were able to get the most from the package we have, which is good. We managed to win the battle with the guys we were competing against, Eugene (Laverty) and Marco (Melandri), guys who have won a lot of races. We’ll keep a constructive mentality and see what Imola will bring us.”
Ryuichi Kiyonari 23
15TH (RACE 1) RETIRED (RACE 2)
“I’m very happy I was able to get back on track today though I was still a bit sore from yesterday’s crash. Actually in Race 1 I had fairly good feeling with my bike but unfortunately in the second race I had a few problems with some vibrations towards the end and I had to retire”.
