d.w Hayes was the first rider to switch to the soft slicks on a drying track. all other times from the other riders were set on rain tires. stoner was fastest on the rain tires. the only other rider i saw on the softs at the end of the session was ayohama

Can't blame Hayes for bagging some more experience on slicks, he hasn't had much. Did anybody see the tribute ceremony? Very emotional stuff. And a grand sight to have all the classes out on track at once.
