Motorcycling-Marquez's brother Alex to replace Lorenzo at Repsol Honda

Nov 18 (Reuters) - MotoGP champion Marc Marquez will have younger brother Alex as team mate next season after Repsol Honda announced the Spaniard’s signing on a one-year deal on Monday.

Alex, 23, won this year’s Moto2 championship and is moving up to a category and a team where his 26-year-old brother has won six titles.

He replaces compatriot Jorge Lorenzo, a triple MotoGP champion who retired after last weekend’s season-ending race in Valencia. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin in London, editing by Ken Ferris)
