Weather conditions mark Sunday's Official Test

Sunday's morning session at the MotoGP Official Test has, like much of the preseason, been affected by adverse weather conditions. Light rain and a fresh wind are likely to continue throughout this the final day at the Circuit de Catalunya for the MotoGP teams.

First to ride were Kenny Roberts Jr, Loris Capirossi, Alex Hofmann and Shinya Nakano, with a gradual increase in riders meaning that as of midday all have taken to the track, with the exception of Tadayuki Okada and World Champion Valentino Rossi. Hometown riders Sete Gibernau and Carlos Checa have at least given some cheer to the fans in attendance, putting in laps during the morning's session. John Hopkins continues to develop the Suzuki, and is the only rider so far today to break the 1'44 second barrier.
