Honda still on top by midday

The second day of the MotoGP official test started today at Catalunya, and by midday, two Honda riders were again at the top of the provisory classification.

Sete Gibernau and Alex Barros were the first to beat the best time of the previous day, set by Max Biaggi. There was only 0.009s between the Spaniard and the Brazilian, while Valentino Rossi was lying in third, over two tenths of a second adrift and followed again by his teammate, Colin Edwards.

Marco Melandri completed the top 5 ahead of Capirossi and Biaggi. The rider who lapped the most so far was John Hopkins, who clocked 52 laps. After a short break around 2pm, the riders were back on track to work in sunny and warm conditions until 6pm.
