Home / MotoGP / MotoGP: Rossi, Yamaha postpone testing after poor weather in Valencia

valentino rossi valencia 2014Movistar Yamaha MotoGP has decided to postpone their testing plans until tomorrow after rain put action to a halt at the second day of MotoGP testing in Valencia.

Valentino Rossi was one of only eleven riders who braved the rainy weather at a soaking wet Ricardo Tormo Circuit. The Italian sensibly decided to wait for conditions to get better before mounting his 2014 Yamaha M1, saving the 2015 bike for dry conditions.

With two hours and forty minutes of the session remaining, the nine-time World Champion cautiously picked up the pace over his first flying laps. He soon rose to third place, posting a 1’43.813 on his eighth lap. Rossi then had a short stop at the pitbox before heading back out on the track. However, he was only able to complete 13 laps as weather conditions suddenly took a turn for the worse, leading the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team to decide to resume the testing program tomorrow instead.
