Well look at that Danny Kent rediscovering his Assen form, maybe he got the kick up the ar$e he's needed for a few races now. So why can't he ride like that every race?

Still, a good race from Kent and hopefully it will be like that for the rest of the season.

Great ride by the beaten up Salom. If only pharmaceutical companies could bottle "racer's adrenaline" as a painkiller. Good to see Kent finding his pace on race day too.

Maybe the Honda engine reliability/fragility issues that showed up in pre-season testing when they had to find some extra speed to compete with KTM have finally come home to roost as the engine allocation limits start to bite. It's good to see a relatively small manufacturer taking on the 'evil empire' of HRC and winning, plus it breaks the Japanese-Spanish stranglehold on all three classes. It's a shame for this year's championship battle, (like Pedrosa's DNF in MotoGP), but Vinales will start as championship favourite again next year.
