Dani Pedrosa, fastest throughout free practice, fell after eleven minutes and spent the rest of the session on his spare bike.

Reigning MotoGP champion Casey Stoner is absent after returning to Australia for surgery on the ankle injuries sustained last weekend at Indianapolis.

Nicky Hayden will also miss this weekend's event due to his big Indy qualifying fall, while the re-injured Hector Barbera has again been replaced by Toni Elias.
