MotoGP off to a fast start at Catalunya

The eagerly awaited official test started this morning at the Catalunya circuit in Spain, where the whole MotoGP field gathered for the first time this year. The session kicked off just before 11am and the riders, enjoying sunny and warm conditions, were promptly setting a fast pace.

By midday, Telefonica Movistar Honda's Sete Gibernau already dipped under 1'44. Valentino Rossi was the last rider to take to the track today but quickly appeared at the top of the timing screens alongside his Spanish rival.

Most of the riders had a brief pause at 2pm and should test until 6pm.
