pedrosa changed bikes and still tops.....what went wrong with the bike ??? another red light ?

and spies couldnt keep his spot...i thought he may fall a couple of spots down but even behind rossi ????

BTW checked the analysis and rossi losing half a second in T2 compared to the top runners.....should be a good race

ohh...poor barbera didnt get a tow this time.....

"pedrosa changed bikes and still tops"

Since he had to leave his bike parked on the fence, the spare bike would have been fresh rubber. He was half a second slower on the older rubber.

I reckon he'd have preferred keeping those tyres fresh for QP, but thems the breaks.

"and spies couldnt keep his spot...i thought he may fall a couple of spots down but even behind rossi ????"

Spies was in 6th, then switched to the (slower) harder rear tyre for the last part of practice. Rossi and Hayden started on hards, then switched to the soft at the end.

normal service resumes... rossi over a sec back. expect more gap as the track gets faster if it stays dry. don't get your hopes up yet guys. no signs of anything good from this new riding style.

Ben iffy at best still too
