ParkinGO MV Agusta Corse rider Christian Iddon excelled in the wet conditions at Assen today, and even topped this morning’s World Supersport free practice session.

The Stockport lad is hoping for more success tomorrow, and has already won a race at the Dutch circuit, as last year he claimed his maiden victory at Assen in the British Supersport championship.
