XAVIER POISED!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon was held by traffic in qualifying and had to setle for second place at the end of the first qualifying for European Superstock 600 today. During the day, he had small problems with the gearing and set-up of his GSX-R600, but towards the end he and the team had good ideas about which direction to take. Simeon's nearest rival Nicola Canepa (Ducati) took provisional pole today with a time of 1:46.723. Behind Xavier in third place is Antonelli (Honda), with Ten Napel (Yamaha) fourth.

XAVIER - 2nd, 1:47.370

We changed the sprocket and a few minor things today, to make the bike work better. I had a little problem getting it to change direction, but it's something we'll work on in tomorrow's qualifying session. I probably could've gone quicker, but I hit loads of traffic when I was trying for a fast lap. But, as long as I am on the front row, that'll be OK for the race. Of course, that will not stop me from trying to get pole position!
