Tommy Hill is looking to put recent reports behind him as he continues his quest to break the World Superbike top ten, starting with the latest round of the championship at Assen.

Last week, Althea Honda were forced to issue a press release denying claims that former Ducati Xerox rider Lorenzo Lanzi was being lined up to replace Hill in the team.

Indeed, the British rider remains with the team for the upcoming event in Assen, which represents another new venue for him. Having been unable to test in Monza, as planned, Hill is feeling hopeful for better results.
