Mugello MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)

16 July 2012

Following Sunday's Italian MotoGP, a post-race test session was held back at the Mugello circuit on Monday.

Repsol Honda riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa debuted a 'completely new' RC213V, Ducati tried engine and chassis upgrades and Colin Edwards rode several different CRT machines as Forward Racing ponders a switch from Suter-BMW.

Yamaha's Ben Spies was not testing due to the sickness that he struggled with on Sunday. The PBM, Speed Master and Ioda CRTs were also not present.

Testing began at 10am, with a lunch break from 1-2pm.

Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa and Stefan Bradl fell in the afternoon, but were unhurt.

Ducati are expected to stay at Mugello and continue testing for the next three days.

Round ten of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship takes place at Laguna Seca from July 27-29.
