Wednesday 11am MotoGP test times - Valencia

Valencia MotoGP test times as of 11am on Wednesday, the second and final day 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 will also miss the test after being diagnosed with wrist fractures from Sunday's turn one pile-up.

@ Reject Ronny 1. Dovi did not say the Honda was better off corners. He said at the moment he was having some pumping issues from the rear of the Yam that he was trying to dial out, but it is only the first time he's ever ridden the bike. 2. Nowhere has he said the Honda changes gears faster 3. He also said the Yam was fantastic on the brakes and into the corner. 4. Dovi is already as quick as Cal on the Yamaha (800), where he was never as quick as Stoner and Pedrosa. This does not point to Cal or anybody else being as quick as the aliens on any bike. 5. Don't invent facts to support your story.

OK, so the Honda is 'best' bike, with the most powerful engine. So how do you get a ride with HRC? A lottery? Tallest to shortest? Age? No. Nakamoto-san picks the best riders. So, that is how you match the best riders with the best bike and the best team. Sorry, for the riders that miss out. But they can try again next year :)
