Quotes from the top three riders on the first day of qualifying

Dani Pedrosa (1st): `Since Le Mans I have been recording the same results as Toni Elias did last year, and he won this race so hopefully I can do so too. Hopefully the rest of the weekend will stay dry and if so I´m sure it will be very memorable.´

Lucio Cecchinello (2nd): `I am enjoying the circuit a lot more than I have done in the past – maybe because it is something new and a bit different. There are a lot of riders looking very strong and we will have to work hard all weekend if we want to get anything out of this race and take some points back from Poggiali and Pedrosa.´

Alex de Angelis (3rd): `I like Assen very much and I am very happy with my time today. We have had some problems with steering which we will have to work on tomorrow and make sure we have a good set-up for Saturday´.
