As per Motogp.com Bradley Smith will be racing the first two races of 2020 for Aprilia.

Easiest way forward for Aprilia, given the Crazy Firefighter's doping appeal still to be heard.Smith's been around the Noale garage for quite some time as a test racer, so he should at least by now understand the shortcomings of and  improvements to  the new RS GP V4.

Has anyone got any news on the testing that started today? KTM Aprillia Ducati and Suzuki.
No live timing as yet

Only saw this

https://www.crash.net/motogp/news/938545/1/pol-fastest-day-one-misano-test

On day 2, Oliviera was fastest, but it doesn't mean much as many bikes do not have transponders.  KTM, for instance, do not have transponders on the Binder and Lecuona bikes.

Good news from BB's Facebook page -

KTM have announced they will rely on the skills of Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira to represent Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2021. The South African and Portuguese, former Moto3 and Moto2 teammates, will reunite in the premier class. Brad, 24, has yet to make his MotoGP debut in 2020 but inked a new contract to remain in Red Bull KTM Factory Racing colors for 2021. [ 238 more words ]

Excellent news that Brad will stay at least another year.  2020 doesn't really count anyway.  So Petrucci will ride for the Tech3 team in Oliviera's place.

Sorry that is just a typo on the sentence structure, I meant good news that the article is finally giving away some information on who is going where.

I was really looking forward to seeing Alex ride for Honda. His 2019 championship ride was an excellent one and I think he earned a spot in GP. I honestly would have expected him to set a non factory ride but we all know that the Marquez family is heavily invested with Repsol and Honda.In any event I was just happy to see Lorenzo go.

I have'nt seen any news giving a hint as to why Alex is now out or what will happen to him, he doesnt seem to be getting a GP ride so he may go back down to Moto2 to try get a championship title , not sure.

I hope he stays in MotoGP.  It is beyond cruel to get a Repsol Honda seat and then to go back to Moto2 without having been given the chance to show your worth.

Yeah, I was also looking forward to seeing him on the HRC bike as well.  Alex only had a one year contract.  I don't know why HRC decided not to sign him for another year, but I am pretty sure he will go to LRC.

Alex Marquez - who is she again?  :o

Used as a Honda geisha girl to get MM ink on new contract.

If HRC tricked MM93 and his team of managers, family members, legal eagles, etc. with this technique, I must bow to their superior strategic planning and giggle like a Sunday School girl at the incompetence of the MM93 team.

Dovi has broken his collar bone in a mx training accident. Scheduled for surgery. Let's hope he is ready for the 1st race.
