Loris Capirossi has signed again for the Ducatti team, so in 2007 he will ride the Desmosedici another year. Capirossi firt ride the Desmosedici first in 2003 when Ducati made its debut in the MotoGP championship.
Capirossi and Ducati Desmosedici have accumulated 5 Grand Prix victories - including 4 in the last twelve months - 11 podiums and 7 pole positions together over three seasons.
Loris Capirossi said "I am very pleased to renew the agreement with Ducati. The collaboration that has tied me to them since the start of the project fills me with honour and pride. The fact that a satisfactory agreement for both parties has been reached well before the end of the championship is a demonstration of the unity and trust that has come about during the last four years. I feel part of the Ducati family, I am satisfied and pleased with the team and believe that, even at this early stage, I can easily declare that the new 800 cc powered Desmosedici GP7 has got off to a good start and that we’re going to enjoy ourselves next year."
