Check out the new bikes and riders in action during the post-season MotoGP test at Valencia in Spain, featuring a much different look than race day.

The 2009 MotoGP World Champion season wrapped up with a three-day test at Valencia this week, where Australian Ducati Marlboro Team rider Casey Stoner set the pace ahead of Fiat Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo and Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa. New bikes and rookie riders were on show, including the 250cc standouts of the year, Hiroshi Aoyama, Marco Simoncelli, Alvaro Bautista and Hector Barbera. New Superbike World Champion Ben Spies also made his Monster Tech 3 Yamaha debut in new colours, setting the eighth best lap overall after skipping the final day.
