Nicky Hayden got in gear for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix after a somewhat discreet opening to the practice sessions yesterday. Last year's victor at the Laguna Seca Circuit was the only rider to break the 1'23 barrier today, with a lap of 1'22.843.

The World Championship leader came in ahead of compatriot Kenny Roberts Jr, fastest yesterday, followed by Casey Stoner, Colin Edwards, Dani Pedrosa and Marco Melandri. Carlos Checa was a surprising seventh, with Suzuki riders Chris Vermeulen and John Hopkins and World Champion Valentino Rossi completing the top ten.
