Lorenzo on provisional 250cc pole

Jorge Lorenzo remained at the top of the leaderboard on day one of practice at Brno, taking provisional pole by a clear margin with a time of 2'03.238.

Only Andrea Dovizioso, half a second off his rival's time, was able to come close to the Spaniard on a day when he showed his intent to come back strong after the summer break. Hector Barbera was over 1.4 seconds behind his team-mate in third place, ahead of Alex de Angelis, Alex Debon and Hiroshi Aoyama. The Japanese KTM rider suffered a mechanical problem during the session, affecting his rhythm somewhat. Marco Simoncelli, Shuhei Aoyama, Roberto Locatelli and Martin Cardenas rounded off the top ten.

Czech rider Michel Filla suffered a spectacular crash in which he highsided as a result of excess power on the corner exit.
