Written By: -

MotoGPs warm-up practice at Jerez was done in the same half-and-half conditions that we’ve seen all weekend long, which forced the riders to go out with their rain tires.

Dani Pedrosa once again confirmed his competitiveness in these difficult conditions as posted his best time in 1’50″860 halfway through the session. Thanks to a last lap lunge of ’1’51″340 Nicky Hayden grabbed the second spot followed by Andrea Dovizioso and pole sitter Jorge Lorenzo who was more than a second off pace.

Valentino Rossi who posted a dismal 13th place in yesterday’s qualifying session, leaped to 5th and shortened the gap to the front to ‘only’ 1.2 seconds, while Karel Abraham pushed his GP12 sat Ducati up to sixth in the his last flying lap.

Ben Spies, Hector Barbera and Stefan Bradl followed in a tightly knit group while Aleix Espargaro took his Aprilia CRT machine to 10th.

Missing from the time sheet is Casey Stoner who decided to sit out the session and went out only to scrub in his rain tires as this afternoon’s race is expected to be wet - he was seen sitting in his garage rubbing his right forearm - so it looks like he’s still experiencing some twinges.
