In statements released by the press office of the French team, Oliveira said that the 2019 Dutch TT, the eighth competition of the season, "it is always quite special to compete on a track of unique character.”

"I have good memories of the circuit, where I won two fantastic podiums in Moto3 [third ranked in 2014 and won in 2015]. It is a pleasant circuit and I hope to be competitive over the weekend," Oliveira.

Oliveira arrives at this eighth race of the debut season in the main category in 17th place, with 12 points, four of them won in the previous round, in Catalonia, where he was 12th place.

The Assen circuit is the oldest in the world championship. Currently with 4,542km, it has some of the fastest curves in the world.

France’s Hervé Poncharal, the owner of Tech3, said that the team will invest on the pieces he already had instead of the new ones that were tested in Barcelona by the Spanish bikers Johann Zarco and Pol Espargaró.

For Friday, two free training sessions are planned for each of the three world speed classes. On Saturday they are to dispute the qualifying and on Sunday the races.
