XAVI NINTH.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavi Simeon finished the first day of qualifying with ninth place and a bruised right hand and foot - thanks to a crash in the afternoon session. Xavi crashed at the third turn when his bike spat him off and went to the Clinica Mobile for a check up and X-rays, but fortunately no bones were broken. Badavoni (MV) set the day's quickest lap, with a time of 1:43.192, with Corti (Yamaha) second and Van Keymeulen ((Yamaha) third.

XAVI - 9th, 1: 44.873
I am battered and bruised after my crash, but I'm strong and I'll be riding tomorrow for sure. I am not sure, but I think the reason for the crash maybe because of a problem with the clutch. In the afternoon, I tried to go for a quick lap but I kept running into traffic and I never got a clear track. This is my first time here on a 1000 and it feels very different to what I've ridden before. I'm optimistic that we can improve a lot in tomorrow's sessions and be in good shape for the race on Sunday
