Following Sunday's Catalan Grand Prix, a MotoGP test session took place at the same circuit on Monday.

Testing began on a damp track at around 10am, followed by a lunch break from 1-2pm and concluded at 6pm.

Karel Abraham fell on his out lap, while Cal Crutchlow suffered a big accident on his second lap, forcing the session to be briefly red-flagged.

BSB star and former MotoGP rider Shane Byrne was sharing James Ellison's PBM ART bike.

A further test day will be held at Aragon on Wednesday...
