Cudlin, 30, has been involved with MotoGP previously, having ridden for Pramac Ducati back in 2011 and for Aspar Ducati. Though with bad luck on his side, it looks like the MotoGP sun is shining again in Cudlin's yard.

The Motorland Aragon track is kind of a familiar one for Damian, as he used to be a development rider for Kalex. As for MotoGP machinery, having also worked as a test rider for Suter-BMW, he's already acquainted to both Bridgestone tires and the premier class brakes.

We remind you that Hernandez was borrowed to Pramac Ducati to substitute for injured Ben Spies, who will most likely sit out for the rest of the season, expecting a full recovery prior to racing again.

According to MotoGP.com interviewing Damian, it's still unclear whether he will be offered a permanent seat on the 2014 grid.
