2010 Brno MotoGP FP2 Result - Pedrosa Edges Lorenzo For Top Spot

At an overcast and misty Brno circuit, Dani Pedrosa interrupted Jorge Lorenzo's domination of the MotoGP class, the Repsol Honda rider just pipping the Fiat Yamaha man by sixteen thousandths of a second in FP2. Pedrosa's teammate Andrea Dovizioso was 3rd, the factory Hondas taking advantage of their horsepower advantage up the hill back to the start and finish straight. Marlboro Ducati's Casey Stoner made a solid improvement, ending up in 4th spot just ahead of Valentino Rossi, while the Monster Tech 3 Yamahas of Colin Edwards and Ben Spies put in a good showing to finish 6th and 7th, ahead of the second Ducati of Nicky Hayden.

There is a report Alvaro Bautista has been taken to the Brno medical centre on a stretcher after an accident halfway through the Saturday morning practice session. Is he OK?

I got an SMS from a friend saying he's hurt his back and has been declared unfit to race.

Reports are coming in Alvaro Bautista has fractured his L1 vertebra. He's been taken to hospital for further medical checks. He won't take part in qualifying, and almost certainly won't race. I'm investigating now.

Bugger... another rider injured. They were suggesting cold tyres as the culprit.
