2010 Valencia WSBK QP2 Results - Biaggi Takes Lead In Final Seconds

Max Biaggi has taken the provisional pole position for World Superbikes at Valencia, after a last minute dive to the front. The gap could hardly be bigger: the Alitalia Aprilia rider edged out Althea Ducati's Carlos Checa by just two thousandths of a second. Pata S&G's Jakub Smrz is another two hundredths behind, while Checa's teammate Shane Byrne is a couple of hundredths behind him.

Alstare Suzuki's Leon Haslam completes the top 5, all of whom are within a tenth of each other. The rest of the field is similarly close, with BMW's Ruben Xaus in 18th the last man to be inside a second of the leader.
