Pedrosa departs, Lorenzo signed

It’s been a busy 24 hours for the HRC team in the Moto GP.

Yesterday, June 5th, Dani Pedrosa and HRC announced that they will be parting ways at the end of the 2018 Moto GP season. Pedrosa has ridden for HRC for 18 years and the ending agreement was mutual.

Although their paths will diverge, HRC and Dani Pedrosa have enjoyed a successful relationship: since 2006, when the Spaniard joined the Repsol Honda Team, he has earned 31 victories and was runner-up in the MotoGP Championship on three occasions.

This departure left a opening for a new teammate for No.93 Marz Marquez. Today 6th June 2018 HRC announced the signing of Jorge Lorenzo, the three-times MotoGP World Champion. Lorenzo will join the Repsol Honda Team for the 2019 and 2020 season.

HRC are confident that bringing two great champions with great talent together will make a stronger team and contribute to the development of HRC.
