Jacque returns as Yamaha complete Catalunya test

Olivier Jacque returned to action for Yamaha at factory tests at the Circuit de Catalunya this week, after recovering from a wrist injury sustained at Jerez at the start of the year. The Frenchman, who had only recently had a plate and screws removed from the area, missed out on further tests at Valencia but he was able to complete two full days of tests in the Barcelona sunshine.

It was a valuable chance for the former 250cc World Champion to clock up some much needed laps on the four-stroke YZR-M1 which he rode for the first time ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix back in October. He was joined on track by his factory colleagues Alex Barros, Carlos Checa, Marco Melandri and Shinya Nakano, and you can follow all of their progress with our exclusive video footage.
