MotoGP Czech Republic: de Angelis excited for MotoGP return

Alex de Angelis is looking forward to making his return to the MotoGP top flight in Brno after being called up by Forward Racing.
Alex de Angelis has spoken of his excitement at making his return to the MotoGP World Championship after being drafted in to replace Colin Edwards at Forward Racing for the remainder of the 2014 season.

The Sammarinese rider has competed in 71 MotoGP races since making his category debut in 2008 with Gresini Honda, though he hasn't participated in a full season since 2009, picking up a handful of starts with Interwetten Honda in 2010 and Pramac Ducati in 2013.

Now de Angelis, who has been competing in the Moto2 class, will be returning for the second-half of the year at Forward Racing in place of Edwards, who has decided to wind down his career prior to full retirement at the end of the season.

Beginning with this weekend's Czech Republic Grand Prix in Brno, de Angelis is looking forward to getting acquainted with the Open class Forward Yamaha.

"I'm excited to start this new adventure with the Forward Racing Team on board of the Forward Yamaha. It's great to return racing in the premiere class and I'd like to thank the NGM Forward Racing Team for this opportunity. I will try to use at the maximum the free practices to start learning this new machine.”

It's a matter of who is available rather than who is most deserving. He is a journeyman but it wouldn't surprise me if he turned in better results than Colin whose performance was well below what it should have been.
