Not all victories are the same, as well as not all second places are equal. This also applies to racing world: it may happen to turn out to be very far from the way it looks from the outside, and hardly ever do we know how what it feels like for the riders to live it by the inside.
Despite Leon’s fall due to a technical problem caused him several fractures, still he managed to go onto the track to congratulate the new champion Shane Byrne. Such a beautiful page in the story of this sport really needs no explanations.
Thank you Leon for everything you tought us and all the emotions we have been experienced.
No doubt that you will be coming back next year!
Ci sono vittorie e vittorie così come secondi posti e secondi posti. Esiste poi il mondo delle corse, che tutti noi conosciamo ed il mondo dei piloti che pochi conoscono realmente.
Leon è caduto per un problema tecnico, riportando diverse fratture, ma tutto ciò non gli ha impedito di farsi portare in pista per congratularsi con il neo campione Shane Byrne.
Questa bella immagine di sport, si commenta da sola.
Grazie Leon per tutto quello che hai dato quest’anno e per l’insegnamento che fornito a tutti e siamo certi che ci riproverai l’anno prossimo!
Leon Haslam and the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team edged one step closer to the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship at TT Circuit Assen on Sunday. The Derbyshire rider claimed first and third-place finishes to extend his lead in the title race from 22 to 32 points with just one round remaining.
The 34-year-old was consistently in the top three in both the dry and wet during practice and qualifying at the Dutch venue. And while all his rivals struggled in the wet qualifying session on Saturday, Leon excelled on the Kawasaki ZX-10R and lined up in second place on the grid for Sunday’s first race.
Never outside the top three, the race saw no fewer than six riders dispute the win but with the SC1 harder tyre again working well as the race wore on, Leon grabbed the lead on lap 14 and immediately opened up a small gap. It meant he went into the final lap with a nice cushion and he duly took the victory, his 31st BSB career win, by two seconds to extend his title lead to 28 points..
Fin de semana de gran satisfacción para todos los compañeros de equipo patroninados por Accossato, que participan en competiciones deportivas.
En el Campeonato Supersport 600, Kenan Sofuoglu se asumió el liderazgo a la octava vuelta, marcando su paso en la carrera y haciendole perder terreno a todos los rastreadores. De repente, apenas tres vueltas antes que se terminara la competición, Mahias se lanzó al asalto de Sofuoglu al reducir la distancia, pero el piloto turco resistió los ataques, hasta ganar la carrera como dominador absoluto.
Gran satisfacción también en el Campeonato Superstock 1000, donde el turco Toprak Razgatlioglu tomó el mando de la carrera en la segunda vuelta, adelantando a Mike Jones. Vuelta tras vuelta, le dejó atrás por más de dos segundos. El piloto del equipo Kawasaki Puccetti Racing Team lleva así a 114 puntos, reduciendo a apenas 8 puntos su distancia de Michael Rinaldi.
En la carrera británica Superbike de Leon Haslam gana en Outlon Park y se dirige a la ventaja de 22 puntos de Brookes.
That’s a lot of satisfaction for all the teams sponsored by Accossato, engaged in sport competitions.

Suddenly, only three rounds from the end of the race, Mahias started to bang away at Sofuoglu by reducing the distance between the two. Still, the Turkish rider resisted the attacks and managed to pull out the win, as absolute ruler of the race.
Great satisfaction also in the Superstock 1000 Championship, where Turkish Toprak Razgatlioglu took the lead of the race in the second lap over Mike Jones. Round by round, not only did he manage to outrun his challenger, but he even outdistanced him more than two seconds.
