Rider bio


"The thing that I like most when I am not racing is sport and competition, sport is a big part of my life."

"Every day I look for competition, it's a bit like a drug for me, and it's this desire to win that gives me the motivation to train myself hard every day."

"My father was an amateur rider, it was him who introduced me to this sport when I was just a child."

My first bike, 10 years old

"My whole family is passionate about motorcycles, moreover it helps me during the race weekends because it gives me an additional motivation."

My bike when was French Champion, 12 years old

"At the beginning of my career, it's my father who helped me the most. He used to take me to all the circuits, he fixed my motorcycles and many things like that."

Celebrating with my dad in 2015

"My mother has always supported me and she is really important to me because when I stress a bit, she is here to give me confidence. She is a buyer in a building company and my father is a Police Officer. I have a brother and a sister, they are twins, 11 years old. My favourite subject at school is mathematics."

Me and my brother Valentino

Bartholomé has a clear aim: "In racing, I want to achieve a world title, it's a goal in my life. My best ever racing hero is Valentino Rossi, he is example to me."

I also like a lot Marquez, Vinales and of course I support the French riders Fabio and Johann."

He has already had success. "My best race ever was in 2018 at Magny-cours in Pre-moto3. It was my best because I won the race in the last corner."

Plenty of trophies in 2018

"2019 was a very important year for me. During the season I gained in experience. I learnt to work with a team mate, I learnt to be more focused on the race goal, and I learnt how to be professional."

"In racing, what gives me the most satisfaction is the victory like many riders I think. One thing that I also like is being on the limit, working with all the team to be the best on the track, I like challenges."

"I prefer is the small tracks with a lot of turns and elevation, I love the long fast turns, but the most important for me is to ride, no matter the track."

Motocross training

"I know the level in Red Bull Rookies Cup is high so I don't know what awaits me. But the most important for me is to give my best. That's why I'm training hard to succeed, but like all the riders I want to win."
