Oxfordshire's Bradley Smith finished 14th on the first day of practice for Sunday’s San Marino Grand Prix.
Smith, 22, had just set his best time of the day with a 1.36.004 when he fell unhurt at the first corner at the beginning of his 11th lap.
His Monster Yamaha Tech 3 teammate Cal Crutchlow was tenth.
Smith said: “It is frustrating to have the crash, but I am pushing to try and get the same feeling back that I had in Brno.”
