Quotes from the top three riders on the grid

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `For sure it is nice to be on pole position but it won´t mean anything once the race is underway because it will be another close one. I expect a big group of riders at the front but I think we have a good set-up and I am confident.´

Arnaud Vincent (2nd): `It is good to be on the front row because it looked like I might be on the second row for most of that session. The problem has been the rear tyre – we just don´t seem to be able to find one which is suitable and tomorrow I will have to do all I can to stay with the lead group.´ Gabor Talmacsi (3rd): `I am so, so happy because this is the best day of my sporting career. My set-up was perfect, the team have worked so hard, but I had to follow Poggiali for the slipstream down the long straights because mine is not an official bike and we lack power. Tomorrow I will be aiming for the top ten.´
