Remy Gardner: 2021 Moto2 World Champion14/11/2021
The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 rider wins the intermediate class title, the first of his sporting career, at the end of a stellar season.
At the Ricardo Tormo Circuit this Sunday, Remy Gardner was proclaimed 2021 Moto2 World Champion, thanks to his 5 victories, 7 podiums and 3 pole positions from 18 races. In his first season with the team, the Australian talent and the Red Bull KTM Ajo have achieved double glory this campaign, claiming both the Rider and Teams titles.
Gardner set out his stall early on in the season, placing second at the first two rounds of the year in Qatar. The Australian had an excellent start to the campaign, finishing third at the Portuguese Grand Prix. From the French GP to the Dutch GP, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 talent was never off the rostrum, establishing a superb run of results that included three victories (Italy, Catalonia and Germany) and two podiums (France and the Netherlands).
In the second half of the season, Gardner continued to achieve success, and at the British Grand Prix he took his fourth win of the year, in an exciting race. At the next two rounds, the Australian would again place on the podium, finishing second in Aragon and Misano. The Red Bull KTM Ajo talent scored his fifth victory last weekend at the Algarve GP.
The newly crowned 2021 Moto2 World Champion will move up to MotoGP next year as part of the KTM GP Academy program. It is a system implemented by the manufacturer to identify and develop top talent, through Moto3 and Moto2, leading to them eventually occupying one of the four Red Bull KTM MotoGP seats.
