Moto2: Debon tops rain-hit session

Most of the riders managed two or three flying laps before the shower intervened, and it was Aprilia's Debon who emerged on top with a 2:03.718.

Andrea Dovizioso took second, with championship leader Jorge Lorenzo in third, but most of the field chose to sit out the majority of the session to wait for better conditions tomorrow.

Mika Kallio was fifth on the KTM, ahead of Hector Barbera and Alvaro Bautista.

Frontrunner Alex de Angelis fared worst of all in the conditions, failing to set a time in the dry and ending the session slowest.
