Crutchlow to join Ducati Team in 2014

Friday, 2 August 2013

It has been officially confirmed that Cal Crutchlow has signed with Ducati Team for the 2014 and 2015 MotoGP™ seasons.

In moving to Ducati Team, Crutchlow - currently with Monster Yamaha Tech3 - will re-partner Andrea Dovizioso to whom he was teammate in 2012. Coventry-born and presently residing in the Isle of Man, he sits fifth in the standings behind official factory riders Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. At Ducati Team, Crutchlow will replace 2006 title winner Nicky Hayden.

Crutchlow made his MotoGP™ debut in 2011 and picked up the accolade of Rookie of the Year, having won the World Supersport Championship two years earlier. To date, his premier class career has seen the now 27-year-old achieving six podium finishes and one fastest lap, as well as the pole position he picked up at Assen earlier this season.

Half an hour after the Crutchlow announcement on Friday, it was confirmed that his replacement at Monster Yamaha Tech3 will be Spain’s Pol Espargaro.
