Marc Marquez, Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Iannone all fell during the session. A sore Iannone had to be helped away.

Karel Abraham, who had attempted to return from a broken right collarbone at Austin, has withdrawn from the remainder of the event. Pramac Ducati's Ben Spies is also missing in order to undergo further rehabilitation on his healing shoulder.

Ducati test rider and former Gresini CRT racer Michele Pirro is making his Desmosedici race debut as a wild-card this weekend.
