Valentino Rossi protege Marco Bezzecchi will move across to join his mentor's VR46 team for the 2020 Moto2 season alongside Luca Marini.
Bezzecchi moved up to the intermediate class this year after challenging for Moto3 title honours in 2018, but has endured a tough rookie campaign aboard the Tech 3 KTM, managing only two points finishes in 13 races.
"I am really happy about this great opportunity: I came into the world championship thanks to the support of the Academy and today to be able to race with this team makes me very proud," commented Bezzecchi.
"This second season in Moto2 will be a challenge and I will give the maximum to repay the faith of all my supporters."
