Kallio on pole for 125cc crunch race

After failing to earn points at Catalunya, second placed 125cc rider Mika Kallio needs a strong performance in Assen to keep in the title chase. The Finnish rider trails Alvaro Bautista by a considerable margin in the overall classification, and aided his chances by taking pole for tomorrow's A-Style TT Assen.

Kallio took the front position at the last moment, half a tenth ahead of his title rival. Lukas Pesek, who yesterday took provisional pole, completes the front row alongside Sergio Gadea.

Mattia Pasini, Hector Faubel, Andrea Iannone, and Nico Terol make up the second row, whilst Simone Corsi and Pablo Nieto round off the top ten.

There were crashes from Lorenzo Baroni and Hugo van den Berg.
