Talmacsi cuts ribbon on Misano action

Talmacsi cuts ribbon on Misano action

2007 125cc World Champion Gabor Talmacsi got things underway in Misano by heading the lower cylinder category morning practice session.

Gabor Talmacsi opened proceedings at Misano with the fastest time in the 125cc morning practice session, with a 1´46.465 lap of the San Marino circuit in perfect riding conditions. The Hungarian was just over a tenth of a second quicker than Andrea Iannone, who had led the way for a large amount of the session before conceding his place on the timesheets to the Bancaja Aspar rider.

Nico Terol was third fastest, a further three tenths of a second back, whilst Bradley Smith –using Mattia Pasini´s winning bike from the 2007 Misano race- was fourth. Pol Espargaro and Joan Olive were fifth and sixth, respectively, for Belson Derbi.

Series leader Mike di Meglio could only manage the seventh fastest time of the morning, although title rival Simone Corsi similarly failed to breach the same second as Talmacsi in eighth.

The top ten was completed by Marc Marquez and Dominique Aegerter.
