Ducati has announced that they have signed 27 year old Cal Crutchlow for the 2014 and 2015 MotoGP seasons. Cal Crutchlow joins Italian, Andrea Dovisioso on the factory team.
Crutchlow was the 2006 British Superbike Champion, the 2009 Supersport World Champion and the 2011 MotoGP Rookie of the Year.
Spaniard Pol Espargaro will take Cal Crutchlow's place on the Yamaha Tech 3 team beginning in 2014. It was announced a few weeks ago that Nicky Hayden would not be re-signed to Ducati in 2014, thus ending his five year relationship with the team.
