Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Information:

The Tech3 outfit have been the leading Yamaha satellite team for the last few years in MotoGP, first entering the premier class in 2001 after their success in 250s with Olivier Jacque. Led by IRTA President Hervé Poncharal, the French team scored a brilliant podium last year with Edwards at Silverstone, but the American ends his long association with the factory to be replaced by Italy’s Andrea Dovizoso – who finished third overall in 2011. He joins Briton Cal Crutchlow in his second season in the squad with the aim as ever to finish as the top independent team and sneak the odd podium in amongst the factory boys when the opportunity arises.
