Syahrin joins Canet in 2020 Nieto Moto2 squad

Malaysian MotoGP rider Hafizh Syahrin will move back down to the Moto2 class in 2020, joining Aron Canet in the Nieto squad.

Syahrin has had a tough time of it this season with the big boys and will slide back to the middleweight division in a seat vacated by Jake Dixon as the Brit moves over to the Petronas team.

“I think that together with the Ángel Nieto Team we can do a good job next season. Moto2 is not a new category for me because I already spent several years there, but now I will have a different chassis, a different engine with more power and different tyres,” said Syahrin.

“I have raced against the majority of riders in this class and I think I can mix it up at the front. I will give my best to be a top five rider, I have faith in the team because I have worked with a few of them before, and I think we can do a good job.”
