MotoGP: Loris Capirossi to move to Rizla Suzuki for the 2008 season!


One of the most experienced and talented riders on the MotoGP circuit, Loris Capirossi will move from Ducati to Rizla Suzuki for 2008

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.
