Randy de Puniet confirms Pramac Ducati ride (w/video)

Written By: -

The second to last piece of this year’s silly season in MotoGP, fell into place yesterday afternoon at Valencia when Randy de Puniet confirmed that he has signed up to ride with Pramac Ducati in 2011.

The French rider was sort of pushed into accepting the Pramac ride, when Dorna insisted that Toni Elias return to MotoGP after winning the Moto2 championship, with the Spaniard not wanting to ride a Desmosedici again (he dissed the bike after his 2008 season) so de Puniet’s only option, so late in the season was Pramac.

Hiroshi Aoyama is the last rider to still be announced for the 2011 season, but we expect the foregone conclusion that with Dorna, Honda and the powers of Aoyama’s manager Alberto Puig, all inisting in keeping the Japanese rider in MotoGP, that Gresini’s team will confirm him later this afternoon.
