NGM Forward MotoGP Racing Team Signs Bradl

The NGM Forward Racing team officially announces that an agreement has been reached with Stefan Bradl for the 2015 MotoGP season.

Cal Crutchlow's recent move to the LCR Honda MotoGP team ( CLICK HERE to see Crutchlow, Up To Speed ) raised an immediate question mark as to what bike and team Stefan Bradl would be campaigning for. The answer came today in an announcement by the NGM Forward Racing team. The 24 year-old German rider will therefore race in MotoGP for the NGM Forward Racing Team on board a Forward Yamaha machine next year.

The 2011 Moto2 World Champion has been riding with the LCR Honda MotoGP team in the premier class since 2012 but now looks forward to a new chapter in his racing career with the Forward Racing squad. Giovanni Cuzari, Team Owner of the NGM Forward Racing outfit, commented, “It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Stefan Bradl to our team. We believe that Stefan is a strong rider, that our package will suit his riding style very well and we look forward to start this new cooperation. Moreover, Germany represents an important market and it’s important to have a strong German rider in our line up.”
