Qualifying top spot for `Super Pol´

Qualifying top spot for `Super Pol´

As in Mugello, Pol Espargaro put himself on provisional pole position in the Friday qualifying session in Barcelona.

One of the riders favoured for victory at his home race in Catalunya, Pol Espargaro took provisional pole for the 125cc Barcelona showdown on Friday afternoon. The Belson Derbi rider was –as in Mugello- the fastest rider of the opening qualifying session, with a hot lap of 1´51.103.

Espargaro was two-tenths of a second quicker than second placed Mike di Meglio, aiming to regain the lead of the championship after conceding it in Italy. Bancaja Aspar riders Sergio Gadea and Gabor Talmacsi join the two frontrunners in pencilling in their names on the front row.

Raffaele de Rosa was the fastest KTM 125cc rider of the day, heading the provisional second row ahead of DeGraaf Grand Prix Aprilia´s Stevie Bonsey, Ajo Motorsport man Dominique Aegerter and a rider with plenty of experience in Barcelona, Polaris World´s Bradley Smith.
