Practice stopped at Brno

The opening practice session for this weekend's Czech Republic MotoGP has been red-flagged after two riders were struck by track debris.

Repsol Honda's title contender Dani Pedrosa had been seen limping in the pits, after being hit in the left foot by stones kicked up by Valentino Rossi's rear wheel on the exit of the final turn.

Aspar's Aleix Espargaro was then clearly in pain after being struck on the hand by stones at the same turn shortly after, prompting red flags to clear the debris.

Jorge Lorenzo presently leads the session from title rival Pedrosa, with half of the 45-minutes to go.
