Jules Cluzel set for Equipe GP de France in 250cc

Pulling a swerve on those who took Angaia Racing´s lineup announcement of a few days ago as confirmation, young Frenchman Jules Cluzel has made the switch to ride with Equipe GP de France in 250cc.

Cluzel´s decision sees him make a jump in category at the last minute. Paolo Tajana had come to an agreement with him to ride in 125cc after his three wildcard appearances last season, but a sudden change of heart saw Cluzel looking elsewhere for a team.

Cluzel will debut in the quarter litre class onboard an Aprilia, alongside countryman and 2005´s best privateer Sylvain Guintoli. The Frenchman was also one of the MotoGP Academy´s 2005 alumni, runner-up in the French Championship, and occasional participant in the Spanish Championship.
