Following Sunday's French MotoGP, most riders have travelled to Spain to take part in a private test at the Circuit de Catalunya.

The test has been arranged to evaluate tyres and gather data on the new track surface, which includes a re-profiled penultimate corner, ahead of next month's race.

Rain on Tuesday meant most riders postponed testing until today.

Rabat has been transferred to hospital for medical checks on a possible left arm injury after a big accident at the final turn, while Crutchlow - injured last weekend at Le Mans - currently heads the timesheets.

UPDATE: No broken bones for Rabat but 'Doctors will do more checks to discard ligament injuries on his left elbow'...
