The sneaky Spaniard Dani Pedrosa last second effort knocked Valentino Rossi off pole position by .409 seconds. Final qualifying time for Dani was 2´01.548. Dani now the first rider in MotoGP history to get 2 podiums in one season on two separate tire manufactures is finally coming back into form after a long absence from the front row. If Dani can produce his signature start and get a blazing lead from the first lap it is very likely he can walk away with this race. But sitting next o him on the front row is Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. Also the soon to be Ducati ride Nicky Hayden is leading the second row. Should be a good race.
