Share

The nine-time world champion, given the all-clear to take part after passing a mandatory medical examination at the MotorLand Aragon circuit, took it easy in the opening session staged in damp conditions.

Rossi, who had completed 20 training laps in Misano on Tuesday, came in 20th, more than two seconds back.

But in Sunday's practice he almost hit the tarmac, somehow maintaining his balance as Rabat touched his back wheel at turn 14 - the Spaniard unable to do the same as he went sprawling across the track.

"It was really hard", said Marquez, who began fifth on the grid.

"Since the first lap I felt not so good, I was fighting against the bike all the race". I was fighting against the bike and almost crashed many times.

One of Marquez's near misses saw him try to pass Valentino Rossi for second, only to get out of shape and forced to steer inside race leader Jorge Lorenzo, sending him wide on the exit and to the back of the four-man lead group.

Marquez and Dovizioso were tied for the lead entering the weekend. Fifth-place Rossi is 56 points from the lead.
