Biaggi snatches Nurburgring pole

As such, Jonathan Rea will start in fourth place, ahead of ahead of Leon Haslam on the second Suzuki, while Haga and Tom Sykes make up sixth and seventh. It was a particularly impressive performance from Sykes after he stormed into SP3 having set the third quickest time in SP2.

With the likes of Toseland, Guintoli and Sykes pulling it out for Superpole, there were a number of disappointed parties come the end of the session, not least locals BMW, who endured a torrid session having threatened a pole position challenge in practice.

Indeed, having set a new lap record – and crashing - during the preceding practice session, Troy Corser would go on to fall again in Superpole – twice.

Falling at turn one in SP1, although Corser remounted in time to make it into SP2, another tumble at turn two would conspire to leave him in 14th position. Ruben Xaus fared little better as he also crashed during SP2, though he starts ahead in 11th.

Elsewhere, Michel Fabrizio heads row three in ninth place, ahead of five-time pole position winner Cal Crutchlow, the Yamaha rider enduring an unusually tough Saturday after getting edged out of contention.

Fellow Briton Shane Byrne fared even worse after a fall early on during SP1 left him with barely enough time for a single last gasp lap. While he did make it out on track again, it wasn't enough to get him beyond 17th position.

Doesn't bode well for Crutchlow in MotoGP if he can't show consistency. Perhaps he was wrong in his prediction about the knee injury being a factor? I don't want to see him battling with Karel Abrams at the back of the field next year no matter how much we need British riders back in the premier class.

Can't be said Troy Corser is riding around collecting a paycheck this year. That guy is riding his balls off! Good to see him crashing a little, that means he is really trying to push to the limit, and I like that. He is top 3 material next year. Good on JT, he needed that. Also, outstanding by Sykes. This kid deserves better.
