Stoner wins at Assen, Lorenzo down and out

Danilo Petrucci (Ioda) and Ivan Silva (Avintia) were eleventh and twelfth, with Valentino Rossi making a pit stop for a new rear tyre on his way to 13th. The Italian had been fifth early on, but dropped back to eighth by the time of his pit stop on lap 17 of 26.

PBM's James Ellison was 14th and last of the finishers.

Among those on the DNF list was Honda LCR rookie Stefan Bradl, who began the race from a career best fourth but fell on lap 2.

Cardion AB Ducati's Karel Abraham, who missed the British MotoGP weekend due to left hand injuries sustained in testing at Aragon, didn't start the race after struggling with his hand throughout practice, qualifying and warm-up.

Assen is the only survivor from the inaugural 1949 World Championship calendar. The Dutch TT is traditionally held on the last Saturday in June, Sunday racing having originally been frowned upon for religious reasons.
