Dixon joins the previously-announced Xavi Vierge in an expanded two-bike line-up for the Malaysian team in the intermediate class, moving across from the Angel Nieto squad.

The Englishman has endured a tough debut season in grand prix racing on the KTM, having scored points only once in 13 attempts. The ex-British frontrunner will make the transition to Kalex machinery for his sophomore Moto2 season.

“The British Championship is extremely competitive, so for him to win races in his first full season and finish second the following year there shows his potential.

“We’ve been taken by Jake’s talent and application in his first year of Moto2.”

The Angel Nieto team announced earlier this week it had signed current MotoGP rider Hafizh Syahrin to partner Moto3 graduate Aron Canet for 2020.
