Thirteenth for Fores on his Assen debut.
Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javi Fores finished thirteenth on the first day of qualifying at Assen, with a time of 2:10.366. It was Javi's first time at the technically demanding 5.997 kilometre circuit and he used the two sessions today to learn the track and find out which areas he could attack tomorrow. Provisional pole was once again set by series leader Sebastien Charpentier (Honda), with Michel Fabrizio (Honda) second, Broc Parkes (Yamaha) third and Katsuaki Fujiwara (Honda) fourth.
JAVI - 13th, 2:10.366
This is my first time at Assen, though I have heard a lot about this track. It is a very difficult track and very technical, and it's a track you have to know very well in order to go fast. There are many difficult corners, but once you understand them you can go through them more quickly. I spent today learning the track and preparing for a charge tomorrow. We had a little front fork problem today, so we will look at the data this evening and hopefully find the solution. My goal is to finish tomorrow with a place on the first two rows of the grid.
1 Charpentier (F-Honda) 2:08.683, 2 Fabrizio (I-Honda) 2:08.757, 3 Parkes (Aus-Yamaha) 2:09.662, 4 Fujiwara (J-Honda) 2:09.679, 5 Foret (F-Honda) 2:09.792, 6 Curtain (Aus-Yamaha) 2:09.837, 7 Chambon (F-Honda) 2:09.883, 8 Corradi (I-Ducati) 2:10.090, 9 Vos (NL-Honda) 2:10.151, 10 Lagrive (B-Suzuki) 2:10.241, 13 JAVI FORES (E-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) 2:10.366,
