OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Markus Reiterberger (alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW) grabbed his third consecutive European Superstock 1000 Championship win, second this season, with a dominant display at TT Circuit Assen.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Markus Reiterberger (alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW, photo1) recorded his second consecutive win in the European Superstock 1000 Championship in the inaugural race of the 2018 season. After closing last year on the top step of the podium at Jerez, the new season opened with a similar picture, the German making the best of his pole position to start to cross in first place. It didn’t come easy for Reiterberger, however, with Maximilian Scheib (Aprilia Racing Team) getting past Reiterberger and controlling long stretches of the race. The Chilean was eventually overtaken by Reiterberger and nearly had his race spoiled by a technical failure, his bike momentarily coming to a near stop with just one lap to go. Scheib managed to make it to the end of the race in fourth position. Accompanying Reiterberger on the podium were Roberto Tamburini (Barclaz Racing Team SA) in second and Federico Sandi (MOTOCORSA Racing) in
