A total of seventeen riders will take part in the MotoGP IRTA tests in Valencia on the 15, 16 and 17 February. A surprise name on the entry list is that of American star John Kocinski, test rider for the 4 stroke Yamaha M1.

Kocinski will be joined by full time M1 pilots Max Biaggi and Carlos Checa, whilst Regis Laconi will also take part on the 3 cylinder Aprilia as the 4 stroke machines come face to face with their 2 stroke opposition for the first time.
