Quattro Kawasaki’s Dan Linfoot says he felt like the first loser at Assen’s MCE British Superbike round despite netting 23 points and bagging a fourth place in race two.
The Yorkshire knitting needle just missed out on a podium after dragging himself up to the leaders but just didn’t quite have the pace to catch and pass Tommy Bridewell.
“It was a positive race day for me and it's been nice to repeat the form I showed at Thruxton and Oulton Park and prove it wasn't a fluke. However, at the same time I'm disappointed as I did a great job to get into a fight with the race leaders but didn't finish the job off by fighting with them for the podium,” said Linfoot.
“I genuinely feel like the first loser today but my team did a great job by continually improving the bike over the race weekend and we've got five more races still to go to get ourselves back onto the rostrum.”
