Stoner confirmed by LCR Team

The LCR Team run by Lucio Cechinello, set to move up to the MotoGP class in 2006 with the support of HRC, has confirmed that Casey Stoner would be its sole rider in the premier class.

"I am very happy to make my MotoGP debut with Lucio," said Stoner, who had previously ridden for the LCR Team in the 125 and 250 classes. "The LCR Team is like a home away from home. 2006 will be my fifth year in the World Championship and the fourth with the LCR Team and I think we will get good results together like last season."

"I already lapped on the RC211V last November in Valencia and Malaysia and I immediately had a great feeling with it. I am looking forward to test it again," added the Australian, who had started the pre-season with the Honda Pons squad before moving back to LCR.

The new-look LCR Honda team will join the other MotoGP teams in late January at Sepang, Malaysia, for the first test session of 2006.
