This first day at the Assen track was a constructive one for the GMT94 Yamaha riders.
Lorenzo Baldassarri continued his learning process on the Yamaha YZF-R1. The two free practice sessions allowed the World Supersport Championship runner-up to put in a series of laps and work on his bike’s settings.
