Randy Krummenacher with MV Agusta Reparto Corse in 2020

MV Agusta Reparto Corse is pleased to confirm that it has reached an agreement with world champion Randy Krummenacher, who will compete in the 2020 Supersport World Championship with Andrea Quadranti’s team.
The bike will of course be the competitive MV Agusta F3 675, with which the Swiss rider sets out to play a leading role once again next season.
Randy Krummenacher was born in Gossau in Switzerland on 24 February 1990. He started out in the 125 championship in 2006 and scored his first podium in the cadet class the following year. After a further four seasons in 125, Randy moved to Moto2 in 2011 and scored a fourth-place finish in the German GP. Krummenacher remained in Moto2 until 2016 when he decided to transfer to the Supersport world championship. His debut could not have gone any better, as the Swiss rider won the inaugural race at Phillip Island. In 2017 he moved up to the highest production-derived class but results were not what he had hoped for, due also to a fractured wrist in later races, and in 2018 Randy preferred to return to the 600 class, rounding out the season fourth in the standings, with a win in Thailand. Most recently, in the season that concluded in Qatar just days ago, Krummenacher was crowned 2019 Supersport world champion, having led the championship from start to finish.
His achievements in Supersport are more than respectable. In addition to the world title, he has scored 6 wins in 36 races, 14 podiums, 4 pole positions, 18 front row starts and 6 fastest laps.

Randy Krummenacher: “I’m very pleased to be staying in Supersport, a category I really enjoy and that I know can continue to bring me real satisfaction. It will be a great challenge with MV Agusta and, with the professionalism of Andrea Quadranti and his team, I’m sure we’ll be able to do a good job, with the aim of winning the championship again next season. I thank Andrea Quadranti for the opportunity he’s giving me and the faith he’s put in me. Now I can’t wait to test the bike in late November at Jerez.”

Andrea Quadranti – Team Principal: “I’m pleased to welcome the rider to our team, a compatriot and a person I really respect. I’ve followed Randy with interest for years, and finally we had the right opportunity to embark on a journey together. The 2019 season has only just concluded but we are already working to improve our technical package and give Krummenacher the chance to compete at the top with the best riders next year. Later in November we’ll carry out initial tests at Jerez."
