Moto2: Bradl claims Assen pole

Stefan Bradl takes pole position for the Dutch Moto2 Grand Prix at Assen.
After seeing his perfect five-round run of 2011 Moto2 pole positions end last time at Silverstone, championship leader Stefan Bradl climbed back on top of qualifying at Assen on Friday.

The Kalex rider was leading the way when a rain shower descended on the Dutch track, keeping the German on pole by 0.295sec from star Silverstone pole sitter Marc Marquez (Suter) at the flag.

Ioda Racing's Simone Corsi will complete the front row in third, after lapping within four-tenths of Bradl.

Bradl will start Saturday's race with a 62-point lead over Corsi, which is the biggest lead after six rounds in motorcycle grand prix history.

Female racer Elena Rosell, called up by Aspar to replace the injured Julian Simon, was unable to take part in qualifying after damaging her bike in morning practice.

Qualifying - Assen:

1. Bradl (Kalex) 1m 39.305s
2. Marquez (Suter) +0.295s
3. Corsi (FTR) +0.395s
