[kropotkin thinks...] - Iker Lecuona To Make MotoGP Debut At Valencia Race

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


Iker Lecuona's MotoGP debut has been moved forward a few days. The Spaniard will*replace Miguel Oliveira in the Red Bull KTM Tech3 MotoGP team at Valencia, Lecuona's home Grand Prix.

Lecuona is set to join the Tech3 team for 2020, replacing the departing Hafizh Syahrin, and would have been riding the KTM RC16 at the official test on Tuesday and Wednesday anyway. With Oliveira choosing to have surgery on the shoulder he damaged in the crash with Johann Zarco at Silverstone, it made sense to put Lecuona on the bike a few days earlier.

Lecuona's early promotion opens up a gap in the American Racing Team in Moto2. The team have decided to replace Lecuona at Valencia with Sean Kelly, an American currently racing in the MotoAmerica series. Kelly has experience of Valencia, having raced in the Red Bull Rookies Cup for three seasons.

I'm a bot. I don't need no stinkin' signature...
