It has been revealed that Honda's 250 and 125cc world champions, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso, will test the company's RC211V MotoGP machine at Valencia on Monday.

"I'm almost as excited about the test as I am about the race!" admitted Pedrosa (pictured). "It will be a new experience for me and I'm looking forward to seeing how close I am to the current MotoGP riders.

"The first thing I have to concentrate on though is the grand prix. I want to celebrate my season with a good result in the last race and that is my main focus," added the Spaniard.

Dovizioso will also get to ride an RCV at the start of a week of tests at the Spanish circuit, where Ten Kate Honda's WSBK frontrunner Chris Vermeulen is also rumoured to be given some V5 track time.
