Randy Krummenacher has stolen pole position from Luke Stapleford with his final flyer at Assen after the British rider stormed through the field on his Profile Racing Triumph.

The 2015 British Supersport champion jumped ship from CIA Landlords Insurance Honda before the last round at Aragon and after making technical changes to his title-clinching Triumph Daytona 675 he will finish the remainder of his rookie World Supersport campaign with his former squad.

In the wet free practice conditions Stapleford struggle to set the timesheet alight, pushing him into Superpole 1 for qualifying, but after blitzing the first round he looked set to take a shock pole position on his maiden outing with the team in its current guise.

Stapleford led the pole shootout as the chequered flag fell was rolled out but the fairy-tale wasn't to be as Swiss rider Krummenacher jumped him by less than two-tenths of a second.
