WBSK - Assen - Pre Race

Looking at the practice and provisional qualifying times, Bayliss will surely be tough to beat. He found well over a second between free practive and qualifying.

While its a new track for everyone this year the two ducatis are the only bikes under 1:40 so far. Bayliss is almost .5 ahead of Lanzi and over a full second ahead of Alex Barros (my second pick) in 5th. Fabrizio and Toseland are slotted into 3rd and 4th respectively.

I am sure that the times will all drop by Superpole as the riders get more used to the new layout.

1 Troy Bayliss Ducati Xerox Team Ducati 999F06 1:39.336
2 Lorenzo Lanzi Ducati Xerox Team Ducati 999F06 1:39.888
3 Michel Fabrizio D.F.X. Treme Honda CBR 1000RR 1:40.171
4 James Toseland Winston Ten Kate Honda Honda CBR 1000RR 1:40.242
5 Alex Barros Team Klaffi Honda Honda CBR 1000RR 1:40.415
6 Andrew Pitt Yamaha Motor Italia WSB Team Yamaha YZF R1 1:40.474
7 Yukio Kagayama Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra Suzuki GSXR1000 K6 1:40.567
8 Ruben Xaus Sterilgarda - Berik Ducati 999F05 1:40.581
9 Noriyuki Haga Yamaha Motor Italia WSB Team Yamaha YZF R1 1:40.612
10 Karl Muggeridge Winston Ten Kate Honda Honda CBR 1000RR 1:40.746
11 Regis Laconi PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse 2 Kawasaki ZX10R 1:40.796
12 Troy Corser Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra Suzuki GSXR1000 K6 1:40.837
13 Chris Walker PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse Kawasaki ZX10R 1:40.848
14 Fonsi Nieto PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse Kawasaki ZX10R 1:41.001
15 Pierfrancesco Chili D.F.X. Treme Honda CBR 1000RR 1:41.034
16 Sebastien Gimbert Yamaha Motor France - IPONE Yamaha YZF R1 1:41.104
17 Ivan Clementi Team Pedercini Ducati 999 RS 1:41.268
18 Norick Abe Yamaha Motor France - IPONE Yamaha YZF R1 1:41.661
19 Roberto Rolfo Team Ducati SC - Caracchi Ducati 999F05 1:41.874
20 Vittorio Iannuzzo Celani Team Suzuki GSXR1000 K6 1:42.118

I see a battle between Bayliss, Toseland and Barros. What do you say? Fabrizio will be strong at first, but will fade and so will Lanzi. Also possible to see Corser and Haga storm the front, but we'll wait and see. Haga says the changes to the track are fine with him.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
