Aprilia's Troy Corser's time of 1:35.504 from qualifying yesterday was enough to keep him on provisional pole through today's qualifying session. Ducati Infostrada teammates Ruben Xaus and Troy Bayliss were the only other riders to lap in the 1:35-range, in conditions similar to yesterday's cloudy, windy, cool weather. Below are the top 16 times from qualifying. These riders will face off later today in Superpole, to determine who will earn final pole position.<BR><BR>1. Troy Corser, Aprilia 1:35.504<BR>2.
