Inaugural 2010 Moto2 world champion Toni Elias has signed to ride a Kalex for the Blusens Avintia team in 2013.

Elias - who made an ill-fated return to MotoGP after his title-winning season - rejoined Moto2 with Aspar this year, but left the team after struggling to adapt to the Suter chassis.

The Spaniard is finishing the season on a Kalex at Italtrans, while Blusens currently runs a Suter chassis for Julian Simon... who has been announced as moving to Italtrans for 2013.

"I am thrilled to have reached this agreement and to be with Blusens Avintia next season," said Elias.
