Updated 2014 MotoGP rider line-up

Iodaracing is now the only MotoGP team still to name its machinery and final rider.
An updated version of the 2014 MotoGP rider line-up, following the announcement that Broc Parkes will join Michael Laverty at PBM next season.

Factory entries will continue with their own ECU software but face four-litres less race fuel and a maximum of five, rather than twelve, engine changes during the season compared to the Open class.

The Open class, which replaces 'CRT', must use the full control ECU system.

Iodaracing is the only team yet to name its machinery and final rider - Niccolo Canepa, named on last month's provisional entry list, ruling himself out. Ioda, which used Suter-BMWs this year, is believed to be in talks with Aprilia and Leon Camier...

@Paddles We will have to wait and see what the new season brings. The Factory/ Works bikes will always be best regardless and they (Factory Teams) will always have the best riders. I cant see no one other than Honda coming up with the money for Marquez. Much as I want to see more competition we have to be realistic but I hope you are right and that the open class come up with something.

Yeah, it'll certainly be interesting eagle. Like you say, no one will be able to compete with the HRC Hondas and Jorge's Yamaha. It's at least then a bit of a lottery between VR's Yamaha and the satellite Hondas and (at least for the last season) Cal's Yamaha and the poor old Ducatis are at the back. Realistically, and all things being good and equal, anyone other than the top 3 won't be a race winner and will be only fighting for a podium position if one of the top 3 is injured or has a machine failure, they're just not in the same class. I'd love to see Espargaro and Brad Smith stick it up the top guys, but again I can't see either of them winning a race.
