MotoGP Austin: Front row for Lowes as Rins takes pole

Britain’s Sam Lowes will start tomorrow’s Moto2 race from the front row as title rival Alex Rins bagged pole position at the Austin MotoGP round.

Lowes set a 2’09.100 with his final lap of the session after a red flag for a crash from Efren Vasquez and looked safe in second place behind the Pons rider but reigning champion and Argentina race winner Johann Zarco had other ideas and stuck in a 2’09.066 to snatch second.

Rins holds a two-tenths advantage after setting his best time of a 2’08.850 on only his fourth lap which was never bettered. Swiss Dominique Aegerter rushed into fourth just as the chequered flag came out with countryman Thomas Luthi taking fifth with a three-tenth deficit.
