Former Alstare Suzuki man Xavier Simeon will replace Brendan Roberts in the Xerox Ducati Superstock team in 2009 with Daniele Beretta as a team-mate.

Simeon has already completed two seasons in the Superstock 1000 category and is one of the most interesting youngsters of recent seasons. 2008 was a very good year for the Belgian rider who ultimately finished fourth in the classification with 136 points, having achieved five podium places which included two race wins.

 Beretta will race in the 1000cc category for the first time in 2009. The young rider from Bergamo (Italy) progresses from the European Superstock 600 series in which he has participated for the last four years. He closed the 2008 season in sixth place.


"We are very happy to welcome Xavier Simeon and Daniele Beretta to the team. Xavier is one of the most talented riders in the 1000cc category and we are confident he will be able to help us to continue the winning streak that has seen us take the last two championship titles," said team manager Serafino Foti.

"Daniele is very young and new to the category but I'm sure that team-work and the presence of a more experience team-mate will help Daniele to grow professionally and achieve some strong results. We plan to carry out initial tests at the beginning of January. I would like to thank Brendan Roberts and Domenico Colucci and wish them both lots of luck for the future."
