MotoGP Test – 2019 Valencia MotoGP – Tuesday (13:00)

Following Valencia's MotoGP race at the end of Sunday's season, riders and teams returned to the circuit to begin preparations for 2020 in earnest during an official two-day test.

Moto2 Champion Alex Marquez – who will join Brother Marc at Repsol Honda next season – has been placed on the LCR team for this test and is on his way alongside fellow newcomers Brad Binder and Iker Lecuona.

Alex crashed after just eight laps, fortunately undamaged but causing significant damage to his 2019 RCV. Bradl later crashed around the same corner, while Smith briefly took out the red flags to retrieve his Aprilia from the gravel trap.

All factories except Aprilia have brought significant upgrades to try by 2020. The new Aprilia bike will not be seen until Sepang in February.

Miguel Oliveira and Takaaki Nakagami are not present as they continue to recover from shoulder surgery, but Dani Pedrosa will be back in action as part of his KTM test assignments.

The tests are conducted from 10am to 5pm, but cold conditions mean a quiet opening hours.
