Capirossi hits the front before qualifying

Loris Capirossi was the fastest in the last free practice session before the Alice Motorrad GP Deutschland qualifying practice at Sachsenring. The Ducati Marlboro rider was the fastest by 0.'057 ahead of Sete Gibernau, followed by Honda factory colleagues Nicky Hayden and Alex Barros.

Colin Edwards was fifth fastest, while his Gauloises Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi was only eighth fastest, behind Carlos Checa and Troy Bayliss. Local hero Alex Hofmann posted the ninth fastest lap on the Kawasaki, ahead of Makoto Tamada.

At Suzuki, John Hopkins was able to take part to the session and clock 17 laps after crashing and injuring his foot in yesterday's second free practice session. However, he didn't improve his best time compared to the first session.
