'When I crashed this morning, it was because I was going about six kilometers per hour faster than my previous lap and just lost the front end going in. I didn't hurt myself at all, and the damage to the bike was mainly cosmetic - fairing, handlebars and footpegs, so there wasn't too much work for my mechanics.' - Fabrizio

Leon Haslam: "In Race 2 I was hit from behind at the first corner on Lap 1. I am not a hundred percent sure what happened, but I crashed out of the race after getting a much better start. Following the crash I was taken to the medical center where it was confirmed that I have broken a toe on my right foot. I don’t see it being a problem for our forthcoming test or the races in Salt Lake.”
