PRAMAC DUCATI man Mika Kallio fell in qualifying for last weekend's USGP and here's the sequence caught on camera.

The Finn went on to clinch 10th position in Sunday's race. His team-mate, Aleix Espargaro, fell in the remaining three laps of the race.

Mika Kallio:

"Finally, a good result after so many bad races. I had a very good start which allowed me to find myself in eleventh position after the first lap. I struggled with Capirossi to maintain this position, but unfortunately he was much faster than me. Thanks also to Aleix that has reached and overtake me, I was able to lower my pace lap and together we took Capirossi. I could be very close to Loris in some parts of the circuit and I studied its trajectories to see where I was able to try to overcome him. Three laps from the finish I saw my teammate slipping after touching the white line with the front. I've not lost my concentration and I tried in every way to stay as close as possible to Loris. In the last corner exit I made my best to try to use as much I can his train and thanks to the higher top speed I managed to get ahead of him be one-thousandth the finish line. It been a very tiring weekend for me that I had never race on this track, I hope this result will serve to make a change in my season so far for poor of results. "
