Quotes from the top three riders in final qualifying

Dani Pedrosa (1st): `I am very happy to have pole position, but it is not a guarantee for points. I have to get another good start tomorrow and I think I could do well. Hopefully it won´t rain like today.´

Lucio Cecchinello (2nd): `I have learnt my lesson over the years that at places like Assen you have to set a good time on the first day because you never know what the weather can bring. I helped Alex set a good time yesterday too and I am delighted we are both on the front row.´

Alex de Angelis (3rd): `Lucio made the decision yesterday to make sure we were on the provisional front row and it has worked out well for us. Tyre choice will be a very important gamble tomorrow because the weather is varying constantly between wet and dry and we have not had much time to find a good set-up, so the race will be very tough´.
