Entry list for the 250cc IRTA tests in Valencia

Twenty-three 250cc riders will take part in the official IRTA test sessions at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia on the 15, 16 and 17 February. The list is headed by Italian youngster Marco Melandri, the top rider from last year in the absence of World Champion Daijiro Katoh and runner-up Tetsuya Harada, who both step up to the MotoGP class. It will be Melandri's first test of the off season thanks to a collarbone injury which kept him out of recent Aprilia sessions in Valencia and Jerez.

Another man covering his first laps since last season will be Alex Debón. The Spanish rider gets his first chance aboard the Aprilia machines of the Campetella Racing squad, which also includes Frenchman Randy de Puniet, after being left without a ride due to the collapse of Hardwick Racing.
