Sergio Garcia took pole position during Moto2 World Championship qualifying Saturday at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, in Spain. Riding his MT Helmets – MSI Boscoscuro on Pirelli control tires, the Spaniard covered the 2.9-mile (4.7 km) track in 1:41.894, earning pole position and breaking the All-Time Lap Record of 1:41.917 he set Saturday morning.

Fermin Aldeguer was the best of the rest with a 1:42.134 on his MB Conveyors SpeedUp Boscoscuro, and Red Bull KTM Ajo rider Celestino Vietti claimed the third and final spot on the front with a time of 1:42.182 on his Kalex.

After running near the top all day Friday and again on Saturday morning, American Joe Roberts slipped to ninth in qualifying with a 1:42.364 on his OnlyFans American Racing Team Kalex.

The top 17 qualifiers were covered by less than one second.
