Bradl announces new race number

2011 Moto2 World Champion Stefan Bradl announced on his officialFacebook page that he has chosen a new race number for his debut MotoGP season.

Bradl will sport the number 6 on his bike, as his previous number 65 appears to have been retired as a mark of respect for the record-breaking career of MotoGP veteran Loris Capirossi.

The young German rider joins the LCR Honda team for his first year in the premier class, and is the only rookie who will pilot a factory supported machine rather than a CRT.
