The 2010 prospects of three riders – Jules Cluzel, Dominique Aegerter and Valentin Debise – have developed further as preparations for the inaugural Moto2 season continue.

With the debut Moto2 season edging ever closer and teams developing their prototypes, rider line-ups are also being worked on.

Three more riders have now revealed their plans for the 2010 season, and will make the step up to the new category.

Frenchman Jules Cluzel, who finished the 2009 250cc season in 12th place, will team up with the Forward Racing team who competed in MotoGP this season as Hayate Racing, after confirming that he tested a 600cc 4-stroke for the first time in Valencia last week.

Also making the graduation from the quarter-litre category to the new intermediate class will be another French rider, Valentin Debise.

The 17 year-old, who finished in 21st place in this year’s 250cc World Championship, has announced he has signed a deal with WTR to ride in Moto2.

And joining both will be Dominique Aegerter, with Technomag-CIP confirming the Swiss rider will race for them in 2010 after Debise’s switch to WTR.

Aegerter finished in 13th position in the 125cc class in 2009, and will ride with a chassis produced by the Swiss-based manufacturer Suter Racing Technology.
