UPDATE: Rain showers continued throughout the day, meaning the likes of Repsol Honda and Movistar Yamaha did not test. The next Michelin outing for MotoGP race riders will not be until after the Valencia season finale, although test riders will be on track after several more of the remaining rounds.

The forecast rain may have stayed away from Sunday's Brno MotoGP race, but Monday's Michelin test got off to a damp start.

The test is only the second time since Sepang in February that satellite riders have the chance to try the 2016 tyres - factory riders also tested after Mugello - but the wet weather means only a handful of riders have been on track.

Most of those have been using wet tyres, but Michelin have confirmed to Crash.net that Pramac Ducati's Danilo Petrucci was using intermediates.

Intermediates are not part of the present Bridgestone tyre allocation, but will return for the new Michelin era.

Meanwhile, LCR Honda's Cal Crutchlow has been on track in a new Castrol-based livery.

The track is open for testing between 10am and 6pm, but few of the top riders are expected to ride unless the conditions improve.
