2014 MotoGP Rider Entry List

The FIM released its latest edition of the provisional rider’s entry list for the 2014 MotoGP Championship.

The grid now contains 24 riders, with 11 of those on factory machines from Ducati (GP13), Honda RC213V, and Yamaha (YZR-M1).

The big changes from the last rider entry list are the addition of former World Superbike pilot Leon Camier joining Iodaracing Project with teammate Danilo Petrucci. Camier, 27, who will pilot ART machinery, becomes the fifth British rider on the 2014 MotoGP grid.

Also, the Australian Broc Parkes was confirmed to ride an Open entry aboard a Paul Bird Motorsports machine with an Aprilia engine.

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 CRT. 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.
