Friday practice - Dutch MotoGP, Assen

Full Friday free practice times from the Dutch MotoGP at Assen, round 7 of 18.
This morning's session was extended from 45 to 90-minutes to make up for the cancellation of Thursday afternoon practice.

All three Repsol Honda riders - Casey Stoner, Andrea Dovizioso and Hiroshi Aoyama - suffered big crashes in the opening minutes.

The injured Dani Pedrosa has been replaced at Repsol Honda by Aoyama this weekend, with HRC test rider Kousuke Akiyoshi taking Aoyama's Gresini Honda seat.

Steady progress being made by Rossi, my guess is that he doesn't want to reveal his cards too soon. He knows this bike is going to put him back at the front where he belongs which is why theyve made such a big deal about the new bike, even renaming it to make it clear it's Rossi's bike not the old dog be had to put up with before. Go Rossi!!!!!!
