    Rossi on Dutch pole</span>

    Italy\'s Valentino Rossi set a new lap record to claim pole for the Dutch MotoGP at Assen.
    The Yamaha rider clinched the front spot with only a second to spare in the hour-long qualifying session


    He will share the front row of the grid with Spanish team-mate Carlos Checa and championship leader Sete Gibernau.

    Rossi\'s time was a full second faster than the previous record and gives him the chance of overhauling the five-point gap to Gibernau in the standings.

    <span style=\'color:yellow\'>Max Biaggi, third in the championship, struggled to 12th place, almost three seconds off Rossi\'s pace.


    Brazilian Alex Barros, who will make his 200th MotoGP start on Saturday, came off his Honda early in the session but recovered to qualify sixth on a spare bike.

    Londoner Shane Byrne was 18th fastest, Northern Ireland's Jeremy McWilliams a place further back and reigning world Superbike champion Neil Hodgson in 20th.
