Following's Sunday's Catalunya MotoGP, riders and teams have returned to the Barcelona circuit for a day of Official testing.

Although there are two additional factory KTM test bikes listed, only race winner Oliveira and team-mate Binder are riding today (Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio are not testing).

Aleix Espargaro, who has been struggling with fluid in his arm after recent surgery, isn't present after heading for checks in Barcelona, which concluded that the arm won’t need any further treatment, just rest and some antibiotics. Espargaro is replaced by Aprilia test rider Matteo Baiocco.

Testing concludes at 6pm...
