The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU Challenge riders are all set for Round 2 of the 2018 FIM Supersport 300 World Championship at the TT Circuit Assen this weekend after battling through adversity to impress in Aragon. Despite suffering from a power/weight ratio disadvantage in comparison with the other manufacturers on the grid, that saw the leading Yamaha finish 15s behind the race winner, all five of the young bLU cRU riders managed to still shine at the opening round of the season. Determined to fight back in Assen and, hopefully, with some adjustments to the technical regulations, Galang Hendra Pratama, Luca Bernardi, Dennis Koopman, Joep Overbeeke and Hugo de Cancellis will all be hoping to be fighting at the front.
