Dutch MotoGP: Jorge Lorenzo continues his form in Assen

1 of 1

Jorge Lorenzo went just over a second quicker than this morning to take provisional pole position at the Dutch 250 MotoGP this afternoon.

The Aprilia rider recorded a best time of 1:39.958 at the circuit in Assen ahead of Honda man Andrea Dovizioso, who recorded a best of 1:40.681.

Alvaro Bautista was third after his 1:41.128, just marginally quicker than his best time this morning.

Ireland’s Eugene Laverty was in 21st place with a best time of 1:44.148 on his Honda.

Mike Velthuijzen was the only rider not to record a time within the required 107 per cent so he will need to pick up his form tomorrow in the second qualifying session.
