Alex Marquez will have a new teammate for 2019 in the form of Xavi Vierge who will replace Joan Mir who will join Suzuki in MotoGP for 2019, his manager confirmed.
Xavi Vierge will jump ship to the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS team for 2019 as he joins the younger Marquez brother in the Belgium team.
Xavi Vierge currently rides for the Dynavolt team after leaving Tech 3 at the end of 2017.
Vierge made his debut in Moto2 in 2015 where he replaced Ricard Cardus in the Tech 3 team ahead of the Indianapolis round of the season.
Xavi Vierge currently sits 7th in the Moto2 championship, matching his best ever finish in the class at Argentina earlier this year when the Spaniard came home in 2nd.
Xavi Vierge joins Alex Marquez who resigned his contract with Marc Van der Straten’s team earlier this season.
