Wednesday 5pm MotoGP test times - Valencia

Valencia MotoGP test times as of 5pm on Wednesday, at the end of the second and final day.
Following Sunday's season-ending Valencia Grand Prix an official MotoGP test session was held at the circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The test was 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 were also present.

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

Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo was absent due to his finger injury, while Nicky Hayden also missed the test after being diagnosed with wrist fractures from Sunday's turn one pile-up.

The next test will start at the end of January, at Sepang.

Let's see... Rossi and Ducati have been saying all year long that they were sacrificing the current year as a testing year for next year's bike and that everything was about next year's bike. You would have thought that this would give them a headstart on everybody else who was busy actually competing in the last 800 cc championship, like honda and yamaha. Heck, they were already testing the 1000 at the very beginning of the season. And here we are now and they are still 1.6 second from the top??? After a full year of preparing for the new bike??? And they say that this not even the bike they are going to use??? How's that for a headstart on the competition after one full year of neglecting the current championship and preparing for the next one?! I like Rossi very much and I wish Ducati well, we need them close to the hondas and yamahas (and we also need suzuki to stay and be competitive), but seriously, it looks bad! This was TRULY a wasted year!
