MotoGP Assen 2015, Valentino Rossi Claims Victory Over Marc Marquez

Valentino Rossi moved into the lead from the start of the race and held on to the top spot until Marquez made a move with seven laps remaining. Four laps later, Rossi reclaimed the lead before holding on in a final chicane infraction to take the chequered flag.

The two riders were never separated by more than a few tenths throughout the 26 lap race, pulling clear of third placed Jorge Lorenzo who simply couldn’t keep pace at the front. Marquez bided his time for much of the race, sitting patiently in Rossi’s tracks, before moving up the inside under brakes at the first corner.

The Honda rider, who’d reverted to a 2014 frame with 2015 components, was never able to pull clear. With three laps to go Rossi moved back into the lead midway round the lap before opening a half second advantage as they began the final tour.

Marquez wasn’t giving up and closed the gap to set up a final chicane effort for the win. Deep on the brakes, the reigning world champion slid towards the apex of the corner, touching Rossi and sending the Yamaha bouncing over the gravel. Slowed by the melee, Marquez dropped back allowing the Italian veteran to take the win.
