Fifth pole of the season for Lorenzo

Jorge Lorenzo took his fifth pole of 2006 at the Assen Circuit today, and will start the 250cc A-Style TT Assen ahead of his two constant rivals in the quarter litre class tomorrow. The Fortuna Aprilia rider took the top spot with a 1'40.007 lap .137 of a second ahead of Alex de Angelis, with championship leader Andrea Dovizioso over a second behind the front two. The top eleven were all within a second of the Italian, with little separating his time from those of Shuhei Aoyama, Yuki Takahashi and Marco Simoncelli in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.
