2014 MotoGP Riders

Following Ducati’s decision to run all of its GP14s under the Open-class option, the FIM released the finalized rider-entry list for the 2014 MotoGP Championship.

Twenty-three riders are listed, with eight of those on Factory-class machines (Yamaha YZR-M1, Honda RC213V).

As for changes since the provisional list was released in November, the Ducati Team is now under the Open-class rules, and Niccolo Canepa, who was supposed to pilot an Iodaracing Project Open machine, was dropped (Canepa is now racing in World Superbike with Ducati). Added to the finalized list was Broc Parkes; the Australian is piloting a Paul Bird Motorsports Arpilia.

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).
