FRONT ROW FOR XAVI!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavi Simeon clocked the fourth quickest time in qualifying and will start tomorrow's Superstock 1000 race from the front row of the grid. Fortunately, Xavi did not have any problems with his ankle today and was able to ride his bike without discomfort. Because of today's damp conditions, all the lap times to determine the grid were taken from yesterday's qualifying session. That meant Niccolo Canepa (Ducati) is on pole position, with Claudio Corti (Yamaha) second and Didier Van Keymeulen (Yamaha) third and Xavi fourth.

Xavi - 4th, 1:42.510
I am happy because I was able to ride my bike today without any big problems from my ankle. The strapping I wore overnight helped a lot and I had a support on it today as well, but really it was no problem. In the morning we had some suspension problems and I couldn't go fast, but in the afternoon we softened the suspension and the bike was much better. I think my bike now has a good set-up for both dry and wet and I feel confident that I can make a good result.
