Jorge Lorenzo

When you mix insane talent with a salacious appetite for winning, quite often you’re gunna get a pretty successful result and no-one is proof of that more than the brilliant Jorge Lorenzo.

The Malaga-born speedster burst onto the scene way back in 2002 on the 125cc circuit and he’s just never looked back, sweeping all honours before him since that day 12 years ago. After three years Jorge moved up to the 250’s and from that point, all the way back in 2006, he has never finished below 4th in a series - winning four of the eight he’s competed in.

He grabbed two title wins on the 250’s, in ’06 and ’07, but he didn’t just win - he utterly dominated for both seasons.That made Jorge’s name as the biggest talent in motor sport and he decided it was time to step up to the biggest and best motor sport championship in the world with Yamaha.

His debut season saw him finish 4th, a pretty incredible rookie campaign, and since then he has won two world titles and finished 2nd three times, becoming the man to beat in the paddock in the process.

2013 saw Jorge have an incredible battle with rookie Marc Marquez and even a broken collarbone wouldn’t deter the number 99, but he just missed out on a third world championship victory and he’s ready to put that right in 2014 - his seventh year with the Monster Energy backed Yamaha team.

His smooth as butter riding style and ruthless worth ethic mean this is no more of a racer committed to throwing everything at his craft than Jorge, and he’s got some scores to settle.
