Mist lifting ahead of French race action

Mist lifting ahead of French race action

MotoGP woke up to a foggy, chilly morning at Le Mans, but the skies are clearing steadily in France as the fifth round of the season hots up nicely.

The local weather conditions at the Alice Grand Prix de France have been typically changeable this weekend and Sunday morning´s misty skies will have provided the riders and their teams with food for thought ahead of this afternoon´s racing.

The forecasts have not been hugely reliable over the last 48 hours thus far at Le Mans, but with a 50% chance of rain predicted for 2pm when today´s MotoGP race commences and some low temperatures this morning there are sure to be some tricky last minute tyre decisions to be made.

After the customary morning warm-up sessions the 125cc riders will, as usual, be the first to race, starting at 11am, followed by the 250cc race at 12.15pm, with the premier class men rounding off the day´s proceedings.

A Spanish trio of pole men, Dani Pedrosa (MotoGP), Alex Debon (250cc) and Sergio Gadea (125cc), will all be looking to make the most of their respective top spots on the grid once the real action gets underway.
