Randy Krummanacher came into the MotoGP racing scene in 2007 in the 250cc classriding for the factory KTM team. He burst onto the scene and wowed fans and fellow riders alike with some of his performances. He finished a respectable 14th his rookie year, and continued to race for KTM in 2008.
Unfortunately, an untimely mountain biking accident during the 2008 season, forced Randy to undergo emergency surgery to remove his spleen. He did return to racing that season, but his form and fitness suffered throughout the rest of the year and he ended up 25th overall in the final standings.
In 2009, Krummenacher signed on with the Degraff Grand Prix team. He still seemed unable to find his form again, and could only manage one 9th place best-finish for the season. He stood 21st in the final standings at year's end. Randy continued to ride for Degraff Grand Prix in 2010, and although he had no podium finishes, or even pole starts, he managed to climb into 9th by the end of the season.
2011 finds Krummenacher moving up to Moto2 and riding a Kalex machine for Switzerland Keiffer.

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.
Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell
Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.
No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.
Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.
