There was a worry that rain might disrupt the Mugello tests, but instead the MotoGP riders have been welcomed with sunshine.
The Tuscan circuit is overrunning with MotoGP bikes, with the factory Aprilia (Aleix Espargarò and Scott Redding), Ducati (Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo), Honda (Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa), Suzuki (Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins) e Yamaha (Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales)teams all hard at work, in addition to team LCR with Cal Crutchlow.
As well as riders in the reigning class, several Moto2 teams are also present at Mugello: Mattia Pasini and Andrea Locatelli with Team Italtrans' Kalex bikes, Alex Marquez and Joan Mir with those of Marc VDS and Sam Lowes with the KTM.
Testing will conclude at 6pm CET and, being a private test, there will be no official timing service.
