PICTURES: Valencia MotoGP test.

Pictures from the Valencia MotoGP test are now on Crash.Net.

The 2008 racing season may only have concluded on Sunday afternoon, but preparations for the 2009 season began this (Monday) morning with the start of the two-day test.

The test marks Nicky Hayden's Ducati debut (pictured), Andrea Dovizioso's Repsol Honda debut, Marco Melandri's Kawasaki debut and the first test for 2009 MotoGP rookies Mika Kallio (Pramac), Niccolo Canepa (Pramac) and Yuki Takahashi (Team Scot Honda).

Toni Elias makes his return to Honda Gresini at the test, while Sete Gibernau takes to the track with the newly-formed Onde 2000 Ducati team. Tech 3 Yamaha is the only team not present.

Bridgestone was recently announced as the exclusive MotoGP tyre supplier for the next three seasons and all riders at the test are therefore using the Japanese rubber.

Pictures from the Valencia test will be updated throughout Monday and Tuesday.

Well i'm glad 2008 is over, it's been the biggest pile of poo in the last few rounds....don't think i can be bothered either way with MotoGP next year, coverage goes to the BBC from Eurosport for us Brits next year the racing looks like a procession, if it wasn't for Rossi's riding there would be no spectacle, to say i fell asleep 3 laps fromn the end of yesterdays race is no lie. There just doesn't seem to be any action in the racing anymore the 125 / 250 races are far more exciting and we won't have much chance to see them next year with the communists that run the BBC doing the show. Dorna have broken MotoGP...shame on you!
