Edwards fastest whilst Rossi makes early exit

Colin Edwards continues to head the free practice leaderboards at the Assen Circuit, whilst team-mate Valentino Rossi returned to the box after just 4 laps of the Dutch track.

The Italian, who crashed out spectacularly yesterday morning, played no further part in the session. Edwards' time of 1'37.215 maintains his lead in the table, ahead of Nicky Hayden, Randy de Puniet and Casey Stoner. Shinya Nakno was fifth, followed by a Dani Pedrosa who made a vast improvement on yesterday's times.

Loris Capirossi and Marco Melandri seem to also be still feeling the after-effects of their Catalunya crash, off the pace in fifteenth and eleventh.
