With the unpredictable weather Free Practice 2 start at 14.10 pm Local time. And with the rain weather so not much riders down early to the track. Marco Simonceli "the hero for this week" put the 1st place in the early minute and Valentino Rossi with his awesome and high technique of ride coming and take a lead with 1.56.325 and he improve his time again with 1.54884.
But the wind from Aussie Casey Stoner still on his box, because he said before Free Practice he got a flu, so rain make he think twice to doing Free Practice. Jorge Lorenzo still on his box also.
After 32 minutes remaining Stoner going out from his box to feel the track and get point for know condition his bike. And no need to long with his fast bike he already clear Valentino Rossi time and make him on the 1st place with 2 second time more fast than Vale, with 1.52.798
Because of the rain, some riders more prepare to only talk with mechanic about his bike on them box. Mr. Famous aka Nicky Hayden, The Texas Tornado aka Colin Edwads, Cute and calm riders aka Horoshi Aoyama, The sweety rider aka Alvaro Bautisa and handsome rider aka Karel Abraham, they all still on the track to make a great lap without the "main Riders".
And its works, we can see Hiroshi Aoyama can take 4th position,he not stop his bike and no complaining about the weather he just ride and he can feel 2nd place. The sweety Alvaro Bautisa with his spirit, push his bike and at 15 minutes to go he take the 1st position with his blue bike "Suzuki". No rule in MotoGP not only need to be fast to feel the top place in Practice, but doing the best and never give up, riders can grab all think look hard be easy to achieve.
Time remaining is 14 minutes to go and the track from wet getting dry. Jorge Lorenzo goin out from his box for first in this practice, look late but he dont need to long to the track maybe and he on 4th place until the end of this Practice.

In the final minutes Colin Edwars just going out from his box, but in the turn 5 he got hard crash, maybe its because the tyres still cold after stop on garage. And look like he got a hurt and taken to the Medical Center and the diagnosed Colin got broken right collarbone and need surgery immediately and going to hospital in Barcelona. So we already know about only 16 riders for Catalunya GP because Dani Pedrosa still in recovery and know we must face the fact is Colin Edwars can't ride too. So Only 15 riders will fight on Sunday.
The Rookie Karel Abraham not happy at all with his achievement on both of practice, he said he already has many problem with his bike and add with the weather condition make its more worst to ride
Nicky Hayden still didn't get the good time like he and team want on this practice, He hasn't used the new heavier crankshaft for this practice, might be he will use on Qualifying Practice (MCN), so lets hope its can make the power will come in the control rythme. And for the Greates Rider Valentino Rossi will use this one on Sunday at the race (MCN).
The British rider and the rookie Cal Crutchlow doing very well in this track, he look very calm and stable and he said with the humble words, he learning a lot thing from his hero and his hero is Valentino Rossi. See, He already indicate to become a big rider, recognize where he learn and said the truth about benefit of other rider more big than him. Salute.
