Davies looks to winning momentum

Last week's win was the first for Ducati since 2012 and the result lifted Davies to third overall in the standings. 

The Assen circuit is not a place where Davies has had great success in the past but he hopes the positive momentum from Aragon will be the difference.

"Assen's enjoyable to ride but it's always a challenge to get the bike to work well around the entire track, with some quite different sections," he told crash.net

"I've never been able to make the best of it in Superbike, and my results have been fairly average, while in Supersport I took a win. 

"My aim this weekend, and every weekend, is to be on the podium, and then we'll try to pick up wins where we can. 

"I feel that we've learned a lot over the last couple of weekends, even when things have not been going so well, and I think that this will be important this weekend.

"We know where we stand in terms the chassis and that is particularly relevant at Assen, I think," he added.
