MotoGP 250 Valencia FP1: Spaniards Fast at Home

What Happens When It’s Time to Shine for the Home Crowd

10:42am EST — Hector Barbera, Alex Debon, and Alvaro Bautista led the first free practice of the GP of Valencia, the final race of the 2009 season, and the one that will determine the last ever 250 champion.  Championship leaders Hiroshi Aoyama and Marco Simoncelli were fourth and sixth fastest, respectively.  While Friday practice gives the first indiction of speed for the weekend, in the end, it only really indicates which team or rider has to do the most work in setup for Sunday’s race.
