This is beginning to sound like an ART CRT package is better than a Desmosedici package. Imagine how it will be next year or the year after once Aprilia decides to "upgrade" their bike to a full on prototype.

Awesome, you Aleix!! Congrats! In fact both yourself & your bro Pol did a fantastic Assen job! Much to celebrate..

Much respect to your wonderful performance! Great job accomplished both yourself & your team! Really glad for you, for proving your worth & great determination! Very good Q2 & race pace. Remarkable that you were only some 32 secs from Rossi!

Keep it going :)

The only issue I have with ART is how much of a difference do the CRT tyres make over a race distance not sure if there better or worse cause the protypes dont use them at the same time.
Anyway Aleix is clearly deserving of a top ride soon maybe the rumours about Pol going to Yam are wrong and they want the other epagaro brother either way we need more prototypes out there.
This engine limit is crippling gp I remember a few years ago Jeremy Burgess said on the 800's max power aint the issue its getting the power to the ground. The CRTs are down on power and honda and yams biggest advantage under the current rules are electronics and engine power due to the engine limit.
Open up the engine limit to one a race if somebody thinks that 300+hp is a good idea then they can spin it up everywhere on track then making slow lap times anyway.
But the CRTs aee having power issues under the current restrictions.
