Pasini on top at Jerez

Mattia Pasini posted the best time on the first day of the Jerez official test. The Aprilia rider, who was already the fastest last week at Catalunya, topped again the timesheets ahead of Honda's Thomas Lüthi.

Third fastest Fabrizio Lai also confirmed his good pre-season form, beating KTM riders Mika Kallio and Gabor Talmacsi. Julian Simon, the third rider of the Red Bull KTM, won't ride this week after injuring his right hand during the previous test.

Marco Simoncelli was sixth fastest ahead of former World Champion Manuel Poggiali and Spanish youngster Jordi Carchano. Andrea Iannone and Hector Faubel completed the top 10.

Several riders crashed today: Fabrizio Lai, Toshihisa Kuzuhara, Marco Simoncelli, Karel Abraham, Julian Miralles and Aleix Espargaro. The 125 teams will have another full day of testing tomorrow.
