Tyco Suzuki’s Josh Waters proved his skill in the wet once again, as he bagged his second win of the year during the opening MCE British Superbike race at Assen.
The likeable Australian also fought back when Showdown contender Ryuichi Kiyonari came to retake the lead, but Waters held on in the wet conditions at the Cathedral of Speed to put a stop to the triple champ taking home the maximum points, leaving him a very happy rider today.
“I have to thank the team and especially as it is my first time at the track here at Assen. The conditions were dodgy but I was able to fight back with Kiyo in the wet - and to win was really cool,” said Waters, speaking at the track.
“In the first sector I felt I had a really good pace and then it was really scary on the back straight where the others were able to make up some time against me, but I am so happy today.”
