Published: 21 October 2002

Ruben Xaus has just been confirmed as Neil Hodgson’s teammate at the factory Ducati Corse WSB squad on the new 999.

He renews his commitment to the factory after a torrid 2002 in World Superbikes, where he failed to win a race and could only manage to finish sixth in the series.

The 24-year-old Spaniard said: " I’m really happy I can continue to ride for Ducati and I hope I can continue to get the best possible results for the team.

" The new bike looks and feels great and I can’t wait to put it through some serious testing out on the track. "
