2011 Red Bull Rookies Champion Lorenzo Baldassarri made his Moto3 ™ World Championship debut with the Gresini Team in 2013. His height and physique forced him to switch immediately to a larger Moto2 ™ bike with the same team in 2014.
It was a difficult year, but in 2015 Baldassarri conquered the first podium in Australia with Forward Racing, finishing the Championship in ninth place.
He remained for another season with Forward Racing and took his first win at home GP in Misano.
After a more difficult year, in 2018 he joined the Pons HP40 team and scored five podiums, including the victory in Jerez, the second victory of his career.
Baldassarri, known as Balda, starts 2019 with three wins in the first four races and remains at the top of the general classification until the sixth race. He finished the Moto2 ™ World Championship in seventh place.
2020 season has been a weird crazy season for everyone, Lorenzo started very well in Qatar with the podium then some difficulties arrived, but he didn’t give up and managed to rebuild the feeling finishing the season with rather positive results.
Balda will face a new challenge with MV Agusta Forward Racing team in 2021, with the focus to gather important results.
