Luthi happy with 250cc move

Thomas Luthi, 2005 World Champion in the 125cc category, recently announced his graduation to 250cc next year. The Swiss rider makes the jump alongside his current team and sponsors, and he spoke to motogp.com about the timing of the switch.

"I'm very happy to be able to progress next season. It was part of a plan that I would win the 125cc title, try and defend it and then go up to 250cc, even though I was really eager to move up a category this season. My manager Daniel Epp has designed this plan alongside me, and hopefully we can have a good season in 2007."

In the exclusive interview, Luthi also spoke of the importance of keeping injury-free in preparation for his big challenge.
