Dream start for Debon

Dream start for Debon

The 250cc category saw something of a fairytale first point of contact for Alex Debon. Stepping in for injured rider Hector Barbera in the Fortuna Aprilia team, Debon grabbed a last-gasp provisional pole to complete a dream debut for the Spanish outfit. The stand-in's lap of 1'47.231 saw him place ahead of championship leader Andrea Dovizioso and Hiroshi Aoyama, with title contender and fellow Fortuna Aprilia rider Jorge Lorenzo the only other rider to break the 1'47s barrier. Marco Simoncelli, Shuhei Aoyama, Alex de Angelis and Yuki Takahashi all placed in the top eight, ahead of Roberto Locatelli and Jules Cluzel.
