MotoGP: Valencia Test Gallery
While the 2016 season may have only drawn to a close on Sunday, 2017 has already begun as the annual post-Valencia test got underway this morning.
This year's test is one of the most-anticipated in recent years with a number of big changes to the GP field next year. The biggest of these changes comes in the shape of five-time World Champion Jorge Lorenzo switching from Yamaha, with whom he has spent his entire GP career so far, to Ducati.

- Moto2: Champion Zarco signs off with victory
At 4pm local time, the shock of the day is that Maverick Vinales leads the timesheets on his new Yamaha steed, followed by team-mate Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez riding the new big-bang Honda.
Andrea Iannone has also shown to be quick on the Suzuki despite a big crash this afternoon. Britain's Bradley Smith and former Tech 3 Yamaha team mate are making their debuts for KTM, while Sam Lowes is riding the Aprilia RS-GP as a full time MotoGP rider for the first time.
