Double front row breakthrough for Effenbert

Jakub Smrz and Sylvain Guintoli put two of the four Effenbert Liberty Ducatis on the front row at Assen.
Effenbert Liberty Ducati added another landmark to its increasingly coveted World Superbike Championship repertoire after Jakub Smrz and Sylvain Guintoli both landed on the front row at Assen.

Though not the pole position that both Smrz and Guintoli had threatened during the sessions preceding Superpole, their third and fourth fastest times mark the first time the Czech-based team has had two of its Ducatis starting on the front row.

Naturally, both riders were pleased with their performances, not only because they out-qualified Ducati counterpart Carlos Checa, but because they feel capable of challenging for victory in both wet and dry conditions.

"I'm happy with the result of the day in Assen,” said Smrz. “As expected, the weather here in Holland has forcing us to manage a variety of strategies to optimise performance. I was still comfortable in all conditions and for this I thank the team for their great support. "

"Very fast day and the result was a very good job,” added Guintoli.” Assen is one of my favorite circuits, and with my team we have found a great set-up that will allow us to be competitive regardless of the weather. "

Neither Smrz nor Guintoli have won a WSBK race.

Ron Paul. Already donated twice. Former McCain septorpur.I voted for Bush the second time around because I wanted Iraq to be a success. But I'm coming to the conclusion the problem is Iraqis themselves. No amount of money is going to stop them from murdering each other. I'm disgusted at the Turks too. They're massing their army for invasion when we withdraw -- they were counting on our failure all along. All the neighbors just want the oil...Saudis make me puke and I fart in their general direction.Then there is the big government spending and the immigration issue. Harriet Meyers for supreme court. Immigration is going to have a more adverse effect on this country than the war. Throw in housing crash and the fiat money too.UN bozos.Goes on and on ... the leadership in this age is simply amazing. ( sarcasm )
