Dani Pedrosa struggled in MotoGP qualifying this afternoon at Le Mans, and will start the race from the back of the second row.

Despite finishing combined free practice in second position, a crash early on in Q2 meant he was only able to set two flying laps towards the end of the fifteen minute session. The Spaniards final lap of 1.33.639 secured his sixth position on the grid after being pushed down the order.

Pedrosa declared “The afternoon practice sessions were difficult. I crashed in qualifying then had to go back to the garage and only had a little time left on the clock when I got back out on track. I wasn’t able to make the best use of the session, but at least I was able to clock a fairly decent time and place sixth. It is a pity, because we could have been much higher up the grid. For tomorrow we will have to try to get a good start, come back up through the field and have a good race”
