 Lecuona will replace Oliveira in Valencia

Iker Lecuona is set to give his premier class debut during the final round of the 2019 MotoGP World Championship in one weeks’ time at the Circuito de la Comunitat Valenciana, replacing Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Miguel Oliveira. The Portuguese talent is forced to sit out the 19th Grand Prix of the season following a successful surgery on the ligaments of his right shoulder last weekend and is already on his road to recovery in order to be fully fit for the 2020 campaign.

Just a fortnight ago, Red Bull KTM Tech3 together with KTM announced, that Lecuona will line up next to Oliveira in the French squad for 2020, yet thanks to the open-minded Eitan Butbul, team owner of American Racing team in the Moto2 class, the 19-year-old will have the chance to try the KTM RC16 for the first time before the end of the 2019 season on his home track. Following three full years in the Moto2 World Championship, where Lecuona secured two podiums, the talented Spaniard is now eager to graduate to the MotoGP category.
