According to a report on MCN, Ducati rider Loris Capirossi has reached an agreement with the Rizla Suzuki team and will be leaving Ducati at the end of this year.
Of the two current Rizla Suzuki riders, Chris Vermeulen will be staying on with the team in 2008, but John Hopkins is moving to Kawasaki next year. So while Capirossi will fill Hopkins' place at Suzuki, at Ducati, it seems almost certain that Marco Melandri will be joining the Italian team alongside Stoner, who's already confirmed for 2008.
