Moto 3 rider Jack Miller will make his Moto GP debut in 2015 with the CWM LCR Honda Team.

The CWM LCR Honda Team have announced that Australian rider Jack Miller will race for them alongside Cal Crutchlow in Moto GP next year.

It will be the first time that the team has fielded two riders since they made their debut in the sport in 2006.

The 19-year-old, who currently leads the Moto 3 world championship, said: "I'm very happy to make the leap up to MotoGP next year, especially because I will do so alongside HRC. It's a dream come true.

"I think that every rider would like to race at the highest level in the World Championship with a Honda. It is certainly a big jump from Moto3 to MotoGP, but I am convinced that we are ready and that, step-by-step, learning every day, we can do a great job.

"In the meantime, I remain fully focused on this season's Moto 3 World Championship. I will have to avoid any distraction in order to fight for the title."

Crutchlow announced that he would be moving to the team following a disappointing season with Ducati last month.
