MY 2022

Balda will make his World Supersport debut in the 2022 season riding the Yamaha YZF-R6 of the Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team, sharing the box with the confirmed Peter Sebestyen.

Red Bull Rookies Cup champion in 2011, Balda made his debut in the Moto3 World Championship in 2013, before moving to Moto2 the following year, a category much more suited to his physical characteristics.
After a first season of learning, Baldassarri scored his first podium in the category in 2015, before taking his first victory in 2016. After a year of transition, he showed his talent again in 2018, when he returned to winning ways and finished four more times on the podium, ending the season in the top five.
2019 opened in fabulous fashion, with three wins in a row, and ended with a seventh place finish. He was on the podium again in 2020, while in 2021 some issues prevented him from shining: in eight Moto2 seasons Baldassarri collected a total of five wins and a total of twelve podiums.
Now it is time for Lorenzo to begin a new adventure in WorldSSP, together with the team that has won the title in two of the last three seasons. A high level structure, ready to aim high in a category that has been completely renewed compared to the past.


I’m looking forward to a new challenge in the World Supersport Championship with the Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team and Yamaha. I’m very happy and motivated so I’ll be preparing as best I can to be ready for the start of the season, scheduled for April 10th. I would like to thank the people around me who support me and the team, who believe in me and have given me this opportunity. I’m sure I’ve been included in a very solid project with very professional people. My main goals are to give always my best, adapt to the category as soon as possible and start immediately to fight for positions that count. I can’t wait to get on the bike for the tests and I look forward to the start of the season.
