Marquez fastest despite a fall during opening practice for the Teruel MotoGP, the second of the back-to-back Aragon rounds.

Marquez and Repsol Honda team-mate Bradl were among the few to fit new tyres at the end, but Marquez had been second to Nakagami on old rubber.

After moving to the top the Spaniard, on the podium last Sunday, then fell without harm at the final corner while pushing for a faster time.

Fellow Honda rider Crutchlow suffered a technical problem.

Valentino Rossi is missing his second event after last week's positive Covid test and has not been replaced.

HRC test rider Bradl is again replacing injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez.
