Cormac Shoots Testing: Photos From The Valencia Post-Race MotoGP Test


This was the last ever Valencia test, for a lot of reasons. Riders and teams hate it. Photographers love it, for the light. Here's Dani Pedrosa in the setting sun


Valentino Rossi with a shiny new frame on his M1. Yamaha have changed the way they work, and the progress is starting to show

Some pre-exit rituals are more attractive than others. But all serve a function


New engine and new frame for Suzuki and Alex Rins. Question is, will it help in qualifying?

Big year coming up for Jack Miller in 2020. He tested the GP20 chassis, and liked it. Next year could be his breakout season


That light...

Unusual angle on the first Rossi shot. The bike looks really long and without any visible means of support.

Only the tyres touching the ground and maybe just a sliver of other side knee heading there.

 

...EXACTLY the same thing about how long it looks!!! Is that just an optical illusion, I wonder?

Wow, still only 2 comments.... great pictures as ever, please keep them coming..
