Stefan Bradl has signed a contract with the NGM Forward Racing team to ride a Yamaha in the 2015 MotoGP World Championship. The team announced the signing today on its Facebook page.

Bradl, who is currently ninth in the 2014 MotoGP World Championship with a best finish of fourth at the Austin round, lost his ride with LCR Honda to Cal Crutchlow last week.

“It’s with pleasure that I would like to welcome Stefan Bradl,” said team principal John Cuzari. “We believe that our package will fit very well to the riding characteristics of Stefan and together we are aiming for a season as protagonists. The presence of a German pilot in our team is also an important opportunity to open ourselves to a very interesting market.”

Colin Edwards and Aleix Espargaro currently ride for the Forward Racing team.
