Cal Crutchlow’s debut for the factory Ducati team in Valencia on Monday will be screened live on BT Sport.

BT Sport is showing live and exclusive coverage of the first 2014 winter test, which includes Crutchlow’s much-anticipated Ducati debut and Scott Redding’s first appearance on Honda’s new production Honda RCV1000R for the Italian-based Gresini outfit.

BT Sport 2, BTSport.com and the BT Sport app will show pre-season testing from Valencia on Monday, November 11, between 1pm and 3pm, and between 10am and 1pm on Tuesday, November 12.

BT Sport will be the new home of MotoGP in the UK from 2014 for the next five years and will replace the BBC and British Eurosport's existing coverage.

The channels will offer live and exclusive coverage of all 19 MotoGP races, plus all Moto3 and Moto2 races, from March. In addition, BT Sport will also have the rights to all warm ups, practice and qualifying live.

There has still been no confirmation on who will be part of the BT Sport presenting and commentary team, but rumours are growing that current BBC F1 host Suzi Perry could be involved, as will ex-Sky Sports World Superbike commentary duo Julian Ryder and Keith Huewen.

Current Dorna world feed TV commentator Gavin Emmett has also been linked with a key role in the new BT Sport coverage.
