It’s definitely not a big surprise but, until today, the contract between Johann Zarco and the Ducati Avintia team for 2020 was still not official. But it was the French rider himself who announced it on his Facebook profile, with a photo of him standing under the Rossa’s logo. Johann will be riding a Desmosedici GP19, alongside Tito Rabat.
"I’m really happy to officially announce that I’ve signed with Ducati to race in the MotoGP in 2020 with the Royal Avintia Racing team,” he wrote. “My left ankle is healing well. I can now enjoy the winter and rest with my family, and I’ll be able to get back to training very soon.”
