Ricky Carmichael posted the fastest laps in each session and looked really, really good doing it. He'll have the first gate pick. Interestingly, Chad Reed looked fast, too, but he ended the second session with the only the fourth fastest time, and was actually a few hundreths slower in the second practice than the first. His strong lap in the first session will give him third pick of the gate, with David Vuillemin with the second fastest. This timed practice thing is really working out for DV12.
