Movistar Honda MotoGP has strong presence in third session

The Movistar Honda MotoGP team imposed a strong presence at Le Mans this morning with Italian Marco Melandri clocking the fastest lap in the third practice session and Sete Gibernau being third fastest behind Brazilian Camel Honda rider Alex Barros, who maintains the lead in the combined classification standings.

Melandri – who has been riding well this season and on several occasions has appeared to be the team-mate most on form – clocked a best lap time of 1´44.128.

Valentino Rossi finished the session fourth fastest ahead of Ducati rider Carlos Checa in fifth. Checa´s team-mate Loris Capirossi finished sixth fastest to put two Ducati bikes in the top six.

Kawasaki Racing Team riders Oliver Jacque and Shinya Nakano finished seventh and eighth fastest respectively.
