Pole Position On Moto GP Sachsenring Germany

Casey Stoner, who has topped all sessions of the weekend so far at Sachsenring, set a time of 1:22.384 with his Marlboro Ducati.

Four thousandths of a second behind Stoner was Dani Pedrosa in second spot. The Repsol Honda rider ended the session just nine thousandths ahead of Marco Melandri on his Honda Gresini.

Randy de Puniet, who held top spot for a long time in the session, qualified his Kawasaki in fourth place, before crashing against the barriers after a run through a gravel trap as the session ended.

John Hopkins' Rizla Suzuki qualified fifth, while Valentino Rossi could only set the sixth fastest time, 0.221 seconds behind Stoner.

The Fiat Yamaha rider often bettered the Australian's time in the first three sectors of the track, but lost all the advantage and more in the fourth and last one.

Loris Capirossi could not reaffirm the good form he showed this morning, when he had set the second fastest time with his Ducati, and could only qualify in seventh spot.

Pramac d'Antin Ducati's Alex Barros qualified eighth, followed by Sylvain Guintoli on Yamaha Tech 3 and Shinya Nakano rounding up the top ten with his Konica Minolta Honda. Nicky Hayden n only 14th spot, over seven tenths behind pole.
