The two factory Ducati Team riders for 2015 will now be Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone.

The 29-year-old from Isle of Man will compete in the premier class for the fifth year counting on Honda HRC support and the brand-new LCR Main Sponsor CWM (www.cwmfx.com)

Lucio Cecchinello (LCR CEO): "We want to thank Cal for his trust in our 2015 racing project and we are excited to line up with new Team colours thanks to the cooperation with CWM. In the mean time we will keep working hard to end the current season in the best way”.

Hope Cal enjoys riding the GP13 for the rest of the season!

Interesting that Ducati said

"that ties the British rider to the Italian team in MotoGP for 2014"

I think I'm reading that wrong, but almost sounds like gardening leave for the rest of 2014 for Cal.

Exactly. Sounds like Cal is out for 2014. But who will Ducati put in the Pramac seat? Pirro maybe?Also Cruchlow sits this one out? I guess that Ducati really is a POS. For #35 anyway.

at Colin's ranch for the three of them (once Nicky's wrist is a bit better).

Nice cycling weather too.

Ducati issued a revised press release, which has now been posted. That clears up the confusion. Crutchlow stays where he is until the end of 2014, then goes to LCR Honda for 2015.
