MotoGP testing back in full swing under Spanish sun

MotoGP teams continue testing in almost perfect conditions at the Jerez circuit in Spain. The first day of testing was marred by rain and poor weather, but today the riders enjoy a glorious sunshine. However most riders had to wait until midday to start testing as there were still damp patches on the track in the morning.

At 2.00pm, HRC test rider Tady Okada was the fastest rider ahead of John Hopkins and Valentino Rossi, with most riders having clocked around 10 laps. The riders will be in the thick of testing this afternoon as they'll try to make the most of the conditions.
