Valencia MotoGP Test Tuesday 12:00 Times - Marquez Fastest, Rossi Crashes

The 2018 season is officially underway at a sunny but very cold Valencia, riders waiting for a while before taking to the track en masse. The newcomers were among the first to get out and ride, but they were soon joined by most of the regulars.

Marc Marquez was the fastest man at noon, half a second quicker than Johann Zarco, while Maverick Viñales was third quickest, ahead of Pol Espargaro on the KTM. Marquez started his 2018 season off in the same style as he ended 2017, with a massive front end save that would have seen anyone else end up in the gravel. Tito Rabat was the first rider to crash, putting his Avintia Ducati into the gravel trap, but his crash was only minor compared to Valentino Rossi's, the Movistar Yamaha rider completely destroying the bike he was on at Turn 10, though he came away relatively unscathed.
