The TT Circuit at Assen, or 'The Cathedral' as its fondly known, plays host to the MotoGP circus for round eight of the championship. Assen is a track from the old school world of bike racing that delivers exciting battles and often unexpected results. None more so than podium debutante and eventual winner last year Jack Miller on the satellite MarcVDS Honda. Jack gambled on tyres and took the fight to Marc Marquez, overtaking the Spaniard and pulling away right to the finish. Cue emotional celebrations and one footed stand up wheelies from the likeable Aussie. Weather can be a factor at the circuit which frequently sees wet races and lots of crashes as the bikes reach nearly 200mph.
