Dovizioso on pole for 250cc Catalunya race

Andrea Dovizioso took his second 250cc pole position of the season after a blistering final hot lap of the Montmelo circuit allowed him to overtake both Fortuna Aprilia riders. Humangest Racing's Italian star was one tenth of a second ahead of Jorge Lorenzo, with a lap of 1'46.792. Lorenzo had set this morning's fastest time. The Spaniard's team-mate and provisional pole-man Alex Debon, standing in for the injured Hector Barbera, took an impressive third position. Alex de Angelis will round off tomorrow's front row, ahead of Aoyama brothers Hiroshi and Shuhei.

Roberto Locatelli and Jakub Smrz will start from row two for the 25occ Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya, with Yuki Takahashi and Marco Simoncelli the other riders in the top ten.
