Rossi shows his cards whilst De Puniet surprises

An extraordinary time of 1'57.871 put Valentino Rossi at the top of the timesheets on the first day of practice for Sunday's Grand Prix. His extraordinary lap was no the only surprise of the session, as a late surge from Randy de Puniet put the Frenchman in second. Loris Capirossi and Colin Edwards completed the riders to go round in under 1'59.

One of the morning's fastest riders, Kenny Roberts Jr dropped down to fifth, with Shinya Nakano, Carlos Checa and Dani Pedrosa ahead of Marco Melandri and Championship leader Nicky Hayden. Repsol Honda's American star was unable to beat his fastest time from this morning.
