Alex Marquez has announced that he will remain in Moto2 for another season with the Marc VDS Kalex, ending all the speculation of him moving to Avintia Ducati.
Alex Marquez will continue in Moto2 for what will be his 5th year in the Moto2 class after he announced that he will be stepping up into the Moto2 class in 2015 after beating Jack Miller to the Moto3 world championship the year before.
Alex Marquez, who has scored 3 wins since his Moto2 debut, was linked very strongly with the Avintia MotoGP team as it looked like he was set to replace Xavier Simeon, but Alex put that to bed announcing his contract extension with Marc VDS.
Alex Marquez and the Belgium team will be hoping to continue growing in the Moto2 class and to hopefully continue the successes of Tito Rabat and Franco Morbidelli by taking the championship crown in 2019.
It is still uncertain on what will happen to the MotoGP Marc VDS team but we could see current MotoGP rider Tom Luthi step back down to partner Alex in Moto2 as his current teammate Joan Mir will be making his move to MotoGP on the Suzuki.
The 2019 season will also see some big changes to the technical regulations, as Moto2 welcome Triumph as their new engine suppliers.
