2009 Sachsenring 125cc FP1 Result - Simon Tops Rain-Lashed Session

Storm at the Sachsenring in GermanyThe weather played a dominant role in the 125cc session of free practice at the Sachsenring on Friday, the session starting out hot and steamy, before the black clouds which had been hovering over the forests of Saxony finally broke, submerging the track under a deluge. The rain meant that the timesheets only reflect the first 25 minutes or so of practice, as the riders who emerged after the worst of the storm had passed were lapping much more slowly round the wet track. In the dry, it had been Julian Simon who was fastest, as he has been all year, leading the way ahead of KTM's Marc Marquez and Bradley Smith. The weather is expected to wet on Saturday, with the first chance of a dry day being race day on Sunday.
