2009 Magny-Cours World Superbikes FP1 Result - Rea Leads, Nieto Surprises

Jonny Rea led the first session of free practice for the World Superbike class at Magny-Cours, putting in a scorching lap in the final minutes of the session, and displacing the surprising Fonsi Nieto on the DFX Corse Ducati. Rea put his Ten Kate Honda ahead of the Stiggy Honda of Leon Haslam, while Noriyuki Haga set the 3rd fastest lap, ahead of Carlos Checa. Nieto finally ended the session in 5th spot. Newly-signed Tech 3 rider Ben Spies set the 7th fastest time, four tenths slower than Rea and nearly two tenths off Haga's time. Freshly crowned BSB Champion Leon Camier went 17th fastest on his World Superbike debut, running 1.7 seconds behind his compatriot Jonny Rea, and a second off his temporary team mate Max Biaggi.
