"Today was much better then yesterday"
Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon qualified second fastest in the European Superstock Championship qualifying today and will start on the front row of the grid .
His nearest rival in the championship, Nicola Canepa
(Ducati) took pole position with a time of 1:47 197. Davide Giugliano (Kawasaki) was third quickest, with Roy Ten Napel (Yamaha) completing the front row.
XAVIER - 2nd, 1:47.538
"Today was much better then yesterday because I had more grip and the bike's set-up felt better. Today I could enter the turns faster and so I felt more confident. My team did a really good job for me and now I'm looking forward to the race tomorrow and a big battle. Maybe it will be a fight with Canepa and Giugliano or maybe it will be a fight with just Canepa. If that happens then I am confident that I can beat him because I've done that many times this season already. If I have a chance of taking the win, I will do it, but I will not take any chances with the championship at stake."
