Lorenzo on Pole at Motegi; Rossi Second


It is no longer big news when Jorge Lorenzo takes pole position for a MotoGP race, but the performance of his Yamaha teammate earlier today was noteworthy. Valentino Rossi qualified second, and less than 1/10th of a second behind Lorenzo. Rossi feels he can challenge Lorenzo for the win even if tomorrow’s race is dry (there is rain in the forecast).

The Yamaha duo were in a class of their own … nearly 1/2 a second clear of Marc Marquez (Honda) in position three. The Ducatis of Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Ionnone qualified in fourth and fifth positions, respectively. ¬†Stay tuned for our report on tomorrow’s race.
