The final line-up for this week's Portimao test shows that Valentino Rossi and Joan Mir have now been added to the list of MotoGP riders taking part in track familiarisation laps, with street bikes, on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Cal Crutchlow and Iker Lecuona, included on the provisional test entry list, will no longer attend, meaning 15 of the current MotoGP race riders will be on track in Portugal (including home star Miguel Oliveira).

Test riders from all six manufacturers will be present, gathering track data on MotoGP machines.

Among the test riders will be triple MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo, completing his first Yamaha laps since Sepang, plus Aprilia's Bradley Smith (currently racing as a replacement for Andrea Iannone) and Honda's Stefan Bradl (currently replacing Marc Marquez).

While the full-time MotoGP competitors will only be present for the opening day before heading straight to this weekend's French Grand Prix at Le Mans, the test riders have both Wednesday and Thursday available.

Smith will only take part in day one before handing over to Lorenzo Savadori, but Bradl is set to ride a MotoGP bike on Wednesday (Portimao), Thursday (Portimao), Friday (Le Mans), Saturday (Le Mans) and Sunday (Le Mans)!

The inaugural MotoGP round at Portimao will be the 2020 season-finale from November 20-22.
