Britain’s Cal Crutchlow has signed a new MotoGP deal with HRC which makes him a factory rider until the end of the 2019 season.
He will remain with the LCR Honda squad but the contract means the team will get more direct input from HRC.
“I am very happy to confirm that I will be riding for HRC with the LCR Team again for two more seasons. We have worked extremely hard over the last three seasons together and I am positive that we will enjoy more great results together. I would like to thank HRC for the great support they offer me and our team, and I look forward to giving my hundred percent to this project as always,” said Crutchlow.
