Its been a day of movement in the Moto GP market with Cal Crutchlow signing for 2 seasons with Ducati alongside his 2012 Tech III team mate Dovi. This then lead to the expected announcement that Pol Espagaro will race for Tech III next year alongside Bradley Smith.

This move opens up a lot of implications for next years championship commercially as Cructchlow has support from Monster who sponsor both Yamaha teams. Also I think it wont be long before Cal spills the beans over the move and whether Yamaha offered any factory support or he was pushed to make way for Espagaro.
