Taking an unconventional route to Moto2, Xavi Vierge is proof that talent always rises to the top.

Unable to sit still when he was a kid unless there were motorbikes on TV, Xavi decided he wanted to be a bike racer at age three - and by six was already riding. Working his way up through Spanish youth series, his first real break came in 2012 when he made it into the ultra-competitive CEV European Moto3 class.

However, like many of his peers, he didn’t make the traditional jump from there to the Moto3 World Championship, instead staying in CEV and moving up to Moto2. Runner-up in the class in 2015, that paved the way for a move to the Moto2 World Championship in 2016 where he won Rookie of the Year.

Taking his first podium in 2017 and a consistent front-runner since then, he brought a mountain of experience of the Moto2 class to PETRONAS Sprinta Racing for 2020. After a period of acclimatisation to his new team, Xavi was coming on strong when injury struck at the French Grand Prix. Despite broken bones in both feet and ankles, Xavi was back in action for the next race, then remarkably took pole position in Valencia – the first for the team in Moto2.

For 2021, Xavi is focused on being in championship contention.
