World Superbike star Eugene Laverty talks about his move to MotoGP for the 2015 season.
The Northern Ireland said he had waited for the right opportunity to come along and jumped at the offer of a two-year deal with the Spanish Aspar Honda team.
"There are not that many teams who would give you a two-year contract as a rookie but I pushed hard for it because I want to have a proper go at this," said the 28-year-old from Toomebridge.
