Loris Baz claimed his first ever pole position for Sunday's two races in the third round of the World Superbikes season after topping the timesheet at Assen.

The Frenchman - second in the overall standings, four points behind Kawasaki Racing team-mate and reigning world champion Tom Sykes after the first two rounds - recorded a best time of one minute 34.357 seconds.

That was 0.488secs clear of compatriot Sylvain Guintoli of Aprilia Racing, while Sykes will join the French duo on the front row on Sunday.

Guintoli's team-mate Marco Melandri, Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) and Davide Giugliano (Ducati Racing Team) will form the second row.
