Rossi stays on top on Sunday morning

Rossi stays on top on Sunday morning

As the MotoGP riders made their final preparations for battle at Misano on Sunday morning it was Valentino Rossi’s name which appeared at the head of the timesheet again.

World Champion Valentino Rossi warmed up for his home race with the best practice time on Sunday morning at Misano, with a 1’34.894s best effort keeping him ahead of the pack.

Below him on the timesheet Dani Pedrosa was three-tenths of a second behind in second place, whilst the Spaniard’s Repsol Honda team-mate Andrea Dovizioso was third fastest courtesy of a lap around half a second slower than Rossi’s.

Americans Colin Edwards and Nicky Hayden completed the top five, whilst Jorge Lorenzo was down in sixth place on this occasion.

Pramac Racing's young Spanish replacement rider Aleix Espargaró crashed during the session and ended up 16th on the timesheet, but is expected to be fit to race.
