Andrea Dovizioso prepares for the start of the 28-lap MotoGP race at Indy.
After racing Hondas for much of his pro career, Andrea Dovizioso will join the Yamaha Monster Tech 3 team for ’12 in MotoGP.

Italian motorcycle racer, Andrea Dovizioso will join the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team for the ’12 MotoGP season. Dovizioso, 25, has been a long-time Honda racer and this will be the first-time he has ridden for another manufacturer since 2001.

“I’m happy to have reached this agreement with Tech 3 for next year and I want to thank Hervé Poncharal for the opportunity he is giving me,” said Dovizioso. “I am excited to become part of Hervé’s squad and to be teamed with Cal. I am sure this new challenge will be exciting, motivating and fun. Now that 2012 is sorted I want to focus on finishing the season in the best possible way.”
“I am delighted that a rider of Andrea’s stature has decided to commit his future to Tech 3 and Yamaha,” added team manager, Herve Poncharal. “He is without doubt one of the fastest riders in the world who has proven on a regular basis that he is capable of challenging for the podium in MotoGP. I am thrilled that he trusts the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team to take his career to the next level and we can look forward to 2012 with high expectations. I am convinced that with Andrea and Cal we have one of the strongest line-ups on the grid in 2012 and both of them will demonstrate the potential of Yamaha’s new 1000cc machine.”
