2009 Assen 125cc FP1 Result - Simon Takes Top Spot In Last Moments

Julian Simon leads the first free practice session for the 125cc class at Assen, as is his custom. But the Bancaja Aspar didn't reach that top spot until the very end of the session. Nicolas Terol, Bradley Smith and Sergio Gadea took it in turns to nudge him off the top every time Simon set the fastest time.

Behind Simon, Gadea, Terol and Smith were closely bunched, with British rider Danny Webb setting the 5th fastest time, a result that will surely please his sponsors, Dutch engineering firm De Graaf. Marc Marquez was first KTM in 6th, his team mate Cameron Beaubier only managing the 21st fastest time, just behind the other British rider in the 125cc grid, Scott Redding.
