Alex Rins

Spain Spain


CEV Champion in 2011, Spanish rider Alex Rins made a strong debut into the Moto3™ World Championship in 2012, where he gained the title of Rookie of the Year. Following more wins and podiums, the Spaniard ended the 2013 season as runner-up, just missing out on the crown. Injury plagued Rins in 2014, but the move up to Moto2™ saw a return to form as he claimed another Rookie of the Year title. A clear favourite for 2016, Rins impressed as he fought hard to stay in the title charge, before concluding the season in third place, and being elevated to MotoGP™ for 2017. With top five finishes in his debut year of the premier class, Rins went on to achieve five podiums in 2018, before going on to take his maiden MotoGP™ victory in 2019. 2020 was a year of consistency and more podiums, placing him third overall. Despite a challenging 2021 season, the likeable Spaniard continues to shine, as he battles to bounce back to winning form in 2022.
