Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `It´s always nice to be on provisional pole but I would rather have first place in the race and be second on the grid, that is for sure! Last year I won the championship here but now my focus is completely on this weekend and getting the right tyres and suspension for Saturday.´

Arnaud Vincent (2nd): `At other races I´ve had problems setting up, but here it is coming quickly. We have still got work to do on the suspension, because it´s a really bumpy track, but things have started well. I´m concentrating on getting the bike how I want it, and I´ll take it from there.´

Pablo Nieto (3rd): `I haven´t got a really good suspension setting yet and that is the priority for us at the moment. It is very complicated because of all the bumps but I think it could be the deciding factor between the leading riders on Saturday.´
