Xavi taken out!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon was taken out of the 10-lap race after a collision with another rider during a frantic five-rider battle in Brno. Xavi was looking for a way past his rivals when Colucci ((Suzuki) hit him and forced him to crash. At first, Xavi's injuries looked bad, but in the end he escaped with a severe cut to his right thigh (which needed stitches) and a torn cartilage in his left ankle. Xavi returned to the team's garage after his visit to the Clinica Mobile and is determined to be fit enough to ride in the next round at Brands Hatch on 6th August.

The race was won by Yoann Tiberio (Honda) who dominated the 10-lapper from start to finish and ended over seven seconds ahead of Canepa ((Kawasaki) and Corti (Yamaha).

Xavi - DNF
I was right in the middle of a terrific fight with about four or five riders and it was great fun. Then, just one lap from the end, Colucci hit me and down I went. I am disappointed because I knew I could get a good result, but whatever happens I will be OK for Brands and will go all out for a good result there.

Chiarello happy with top five.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Riccardo Chiarello posted the fifth quickest time in qualifying and will start tomorrow's 12-lap race from the second row of the grid. Belgian Didier Van Keymeulen (Yamaha) took pole position today, ahead of Kenan Sofuoglu (Yamaha), Massimo Roccoli (Yamaha) and Craig Coxhell (Suzuki).

Chiarello - 5th, 2:08.223
After some difficulties - mainly with the clutch yesterday - I am happy to be just off the front row of the grid. But, I'm also happy because the team have worked hard and found the problem with the clutch and sorted it out. It's going to be a hard race, but I am happy with my bike set-up and will be chasing a podium for sure.
