Saturday practice - Valencia MotoGP

Full Saturday free practice times from the Valencia MotoGP, round 18 of 18.
Damp session which saw many riders remain in the pits until the final ten minutes, when slick tyres were possible.

Injured Factory Yamaha rider Ben Spies is being replaced by test rider Katsuyuki Nakasuga.

Former 250cc world champion and MotoGP rider Hiroshi Aoyama has been drafted into the Avintia Blusens squad in place of the injured Yonny Hernandez.

Also running under the Avintia banner is Claudio Corti, making his MotoGP debut this weekend as a wild-card on the Inmotec-Kawasaki.

Valencia has been resurfaced for this year's round.
