Valencia MotoGP Test Wednesday Times 1:30pm: Marquez Quickest As Session Red Flagged For Crashes

Marc Marquez is quickest in the morning session on Tuesday. The session was red flagged for a while, after two big crashes going into Turn 12. Alex Rins was the first rider to go down, the Suzuki rider suffering a back injury which required him to be transported to a local hospital. A few minutes later, Andrea Iannone went down in the same place, prompting the session to be red flagged for safety reasons. 

The track was inspected for fluids, but nothing was found. Several riders blamed extra rubber on the white line, causing riders to lose the front in braking. Track action resumed once soft barriers were put in place to increase safety.

It's been a very long year, and I'm operating on chronic sleep shortage. I foresee several more typos before the end of the week.
