Cal Crutchlow signs up for Ducati in MotoGP
Friday 02 August 2013
Cal Crutchlow has secured a factory ride for the first time after signing a two-year deal with Ducati.
The 27-year-old Coventry-born rider, who lives on the Isle of Man, leaves Yamaha's satellite team Tech 3 after failing to persuade them to give him a factory ride despite four podium finishes for them this year. At Ducati, Crutchlow will once again team up with Andrea Dovizioso after previously partnering the Italian at Tech 3.
