Australian motorcycle rising star Jack Miller will make history by becoming the first rider ever to move straight from Moto3 to MotoGP in 2015, skipping the Moto2 class completely.
The announcement that he has signed a deal to ride for LCR Honda on a Honda RC213V-RS Open Specification bike was made overnight.
The 19-year-old Townsville native, who currently rides for the Red Bull KTM Ajo team and leads the Moto3‰ã¢ Championship after 13 rounds, will ride alongside more experienced Brit Cal Crutchlow at LCR next season.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm very happy to make the leap up to MotoGP next year, especially because I will do so alongside HRC. It's a dream come true; I think that every rider would like to race at the highest level in the World Championship with a Honda,‰Û
