Rider bio

It all seems very simple. "Everything began at the age of six, my father was a motorcycling enthusiast and amateur rider, and when the Three Magic Kings brought me a pocket bike I followed his steps. I want to become world champion and beat my idol Valentino Rossi's records," asserts Jorge. Not a small ambition.

Away from motorcycles he enjoys, "Riding my longboard and listening to music." When at school he enjoys science apart from Valentino his racing heroes are Maverick Viñales and Marc Marquez.

Last year, 2012 was a great year and I think that I had learnt a lot, like improving in overtaking, not letting myself be overtaken. Also I think that I have much more experience in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup for the 2013 and now I know the tracks I want to fight in all the races at the front and finish at least in the top 5.
