Top CRT rider Aleix Espargaro to switch to Forward for MotoGP 2014

Aleix Espargaro

MotoGP's leading CRT rider Aleix Espargaro has completed his deal to move to Forward Racing for 2014, joining Colin Edwards to ride a Yamaha.

Espargaro has dominated CRT with Aspar's Aprilias for the past two years, but has been working on a release from his contract to join Forward for several months.

He will replace Claudio Corti alongside Edwards in the squad.

"After two years with a CRT bike, which have been very good for me, I think the time has come for me to make a change," said Espargaro.

"Forward Racing approached me with an offer, a very exciting and ambitious project involving Yamaha and FTR.

"I believe it can be a competitive bike and the project itself with the team is something that I am excited about."

Aspar has signed factory Ducati exile Nicky Hayden for next year, and after initially being lined up for a new project with Aprilia, will now run production Hondas.
