Tuesday 5pm MotoGP test times - Valencia

Valencia MotoGP test times as of 5pm on Tuesday, day one of testing.
Following Sunday's season-ending Valencia Grand Prix an official MotoGP test session is being held at the circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The test is the first time that the new 1000cc bikes from Honda, Yamaha and Ducati have been on track at the same time. Bikes from the new 'Claiming Rule Team' (CRT) category are also present.

The test also marks the public debut of a twin-spar aluminium frame - as used by the Japanese manufacturers - on a Ducati MotoGP bike.

Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo is absent due to his finger injury, while Nicky Hayden has been diagnosed with a broken wrist from Sunday's turn one fall.
