Stefan Barrier the man to beat in Brno qualifying
BMW Motorrad Italia GoldBet's Sylvain Barrier took his fourth pole of the 2012 season by holding off a trio of Kawasaki riders at Brno.

Jeremy Guarnoni (MRS Kawasaki) got closest but was 0.401s behind his fellow Frenchman. Christoffer Bergman (BWG Racing Kawasaki) and Bryan Staring (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) will complete the front row for Sunday's race.

Barrier's team-mate Lorenzo Baroni claimed fifth on the grid, ahead of local man Ondrej Jezek (SBK Energy Racing Team Ducati).

Title challenger Eddi La Marra (Barni Racing Team Italia) was the top 1199 Panigale rider, but in seventh.

Barrier, who has won three races so far this year, starts round six with a single point lead over La Marra.
