Dani Pedrosa was fastest in both the morning and afternoon MotoGP sessions in Le Mans. He recorded a 1´34.227 lap of the recently-modified circuit giving a lead of less than five-hundredths of a second over reigning MotoGP Champion Casey Stoner. Colin Edwards was just eleven-thousandths of a second behind Stoner.
Jorge Lorenzo came in fourth despite another if less spectacular crash. Chris Vermeulen came in fifth at only four-tenths of a second slower than Pedrosa. Valentino Rossi managed sixth ahead Shinya Nakano, Randy de Puniet, John Hopkins and Alex de Angelis.
