Anthony Gobert, back at the track on Saturday, said this about his crash during Friday's Superbike qualifying session, which he was leading at the time, about 20 minutes into the 1-hour session:<BR><BR>"I put on a hard tire and highsided at the top of the hill. I just didn't give it enough time to come in. The back end came around on me at the top of the hill and sent me over the handlebars. I just got caught out by running hard tires because I never run 'em. I knew before hard tires weren't really my friend. This is a hard way to learn it. Nothing against Dunlop, it just needs a couple of laps to come in. It was my mistake."
