After a half-day on Monday, a full day of MotoGP testing is planned at Valencia on Tuesday. Unfortunately the weather has other ideas, with heavy rain on Tuesday.

As of 2pm, nine riders have been on track, with Yonny Hernandez leading a Pramac Ducati one-two.

Riders making their debut with new teams at this test are: Cal Crutchlow, Scott Redding, Stefan Bradl, Danilo Petrucci, Aleix Espargaro, Alex de Angelis, Alvaro Bautista and Marco Melandri - plus class rookies Jack Miller, Eugene Laverty and Loris Baz.

Miler and Laverty are testing this year's Honda RCV1000R, with Nicky Hayden and Karel Abraham due to share next year's upgraded RC213V-RS model, raced on Sunday by Hiroshi Aoyama.

After an exhibition ride alongside younger brother Alex on Monday, reigning double world champion Marc Marquez began testing on Tuesday. Meanwhile Ducati departed on Monday evening, with their 2015 bike not available until next February.

Tuesday testing takes place between 10am and 5pm, with a third and final day available on Wednesday.
