Monday at Valencia saw six times Trials world champion, Adam Raga, sample MotoGP power courtesy of the d'Antin Ducati team.

The Spanish rider completed a lifelong dream with ten laps of the circuit which hosted Sunday's MotoGP season finale, allowing him to experience the power and speed of a 990cc grand prix prototype.

"Everything has been really impressive," said Raga. "The power of this motorcycle is incredible and the sensations you feel riding on it are unbelievable. I liked it a lot! Compared with the bike I usually use for Trials, this one is so different, it's imposing, the size is completely different and the weight is double.

"The most difficult part was entering the corners and leaning the bike, I'm used always to remaining upright on the bike in the Trial, not to go down and lean. I have to say it has been a great experience and I would like to thank the whole Pramac d'Antin MotoGP Team, Pramac and Ducati for this opportunity. They welcomed me in a very nice way, I also had the chance to have a talk with Hofmann and Cardoso, who gave me many suggestions before going on track."
