Czech Republic MotoGP, Brno - Warm-up

26 August 2012

Wet session but the weather is expected to improve for this afternoon's race.

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

Nicky Hayden is also missing the event, due to his big Indy qualifying fall, while the re-injured Hector Barbera has again been replaced by Toni Elias.
