Pedrosa seizes provisional pole

Defending Champion Dani Pedrosa snatched provisional pole position from Jorge Lorenzo with a lap of 2'03.184 late on in the first 250cc qualifying session this afternoon at Brno.

Lorenzo looked strong throughout the day but was ultimately unable to respond after Pedrosa's late charge. Hiroshi Aoyama posted the third best time, while Casey Stoner completed the provisional front row.

Andrea Dovizioso was fifth fastest ahead of Aprilia riders Sebastian Porto, Alex de Angelis and Randy de Puniet. Lorenzo's team-mate Hector Barbera completed the top 10 with Simone Corsi. Several riders crashed during the session, including Anthony West, Yuki Takahashi and de Puniet.
