I've been following the live timing all day (7.5 hours so far!) and Rossi goes out and pulls out a 1 second gap over everyone.
Then waits til someone gets within half a second or so, and he goes back out and restores his 1 second advantage. Brilliant!
It's also been fun watching Ellison close in on Vermin (a good marker I think) it's down to 0.3s now, whereas Vermin was a couple seconds up for much of the day. Ellison only 2.6s behind Rossi, but back in 16th place.
Edwards and Hopper have been the main guys swapping the runner-up spot on the sheets.
Last 15mins now, and Checa is up to 3rd (he's been top 5 all day). Only 0.462 behind Rossi and virtually even with Edwards. Not bad for a Dunlop shod bike eh.
Who'd have thought a live timing sheet would be so interesting
