2014 MotoGP Riders

The FIM released the provisional rider-entry list for the 2014 MotoGP Championship. So far, 23 riders are listed, with 11 of those on factory machines (Ducati, Honda, Yamaha).

Much has changed on the grid. For 2014, the biggest change on the factory bikes is Cal Crutchlow’s switch to the Ducati Team, and 2013 Moto2 Champion Pol Espargaro’s jump to the premier class with the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 satellite team.

Also, the CRT class has disappeared, and there is now an “Open” class.

As for Americans, only two remain following Ben Spies retirement from motorcycle racing. For 2014 MotoGP, Colin Edwards returns on the NGM Mobile Forward Racing team aboard the FTR Yamaha. Nicky Hayden also returns, but not with the factory Ducati Team; Hayden will pilot an RCV1000R in the Open class for the Power Electronics Aspar team.

Following is each entry in 2014 MotoGP (rider #, name, nationality, team, manufacturer).
