Commuters in downtown Barcelona faced some tough competition at the traffic light GP yesterday, with reigning World Champion Jorge Lorenzo and the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP team descending on the streets outside the Sagrada Familia for a grid start.

With the team and Spanish rider seemingly appearing from nowhere, instantly drawing crowds of spectators, they performed a quick pit stop before firing up the YZR-M1 for Lorenzo to practice his race start.
