As real motorcycle freaks it doesn’t come as a surprise that we love motorcycle racing!
For many years we’ve been supporting riders in the MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, Moto-E and many other championships. We don’t expect them to crash but when they do, we make sure they have the best protection available.
This year is no exception, and we’ve even had the pleasure of adding some more talent to our racing family. We’re proud to announce to you our racing line-up 2023.
Born in the Dutch harbour-capital of Rotterdam on 4th March 1999, Bo joined us in 2020 after two years in Moto3 and just as many years in Moto2. Whilst riding for NTS in Moto2 that year, his best result was an 8th place finish in Valencia.
In 2021 he joined the Pertamina Mandalika SAG Team, for which he’s still riding today. His first year was decent but especially 2022 deserves mention as Bo managed to score points in every weekend except Qatar, Germany and Thailand. Keep an eye on him during the season; we’re expecting Bo to continue his development in 2023.
Our youngest rider was born on 5th April, 2005 in Murcia, Spain. Fermín started his career in the European Talent Cup in 2018. After two years of competing, he made the step to the FIM CEV Moto2 European Championship where he grabbed the crown in 2021.
In 2022, Fermín climbed on a Boscoscuro for Speed Up Racing, the team he still rides for today. During his rookie season, the Spaniard grabbed two pole positions and a total of 80 points. The super talent is now set on fulfilling his potential with the aid of his mentor and close friend; Hector Faubel.
The Andalusian lion was born in Conil de la Frontera, a coastal town in the province of Cádiz, Spain. In 2012, Marcos grabbed his first pole in his first race in the Red Bull Rookies cup at fourteen years of age. He moved to the Moto3 Junior class in 2014 before joining the big guys a few years later.
Marcos’ best season was in 2019 where he racked up a total of four podiums and a third place in the overall standings. This year, he will be riding for Forward Racing and with us for the eighth year in a row, which makes Captain Andalusia the most loyal MACNA rider currently active.
Rory was born on 27th September, 2001 in Perth, Scotland. The Brit was selected for the Red Bull Rookies cup at 13 years of age and started riding in British SSP in 2019. After becoming champion in 2020, Rory moved to the British SBK were he competed for two years.
Despite missing the last races of 2022 due to an injury, Rory signed a two-year contract with the American Racing Team. This year is his rookie season in Moto2 where he will compete alongside fellow MACNA rider Sean Dylan Kelly.
Sean Dylan Kelly was born in the United States on May 17th, 2002. The Hollywood-born rider previously competed in the AMA Supersport Championship for three years, which he won in 2021. The year after, he joined the American Racing Team in Moto2 where he needed to learn nearly every circuit outside the U.S.A.
With that in mind, SDK had a decent rookie season and scored a handful of points. 2023 is set to be focused less on learning circuits and more on racing his competitors. Sean will compete alongside fellow MACNA rider Rory Skinner.
Born in 1996 in Ascoli Piceno, Italy, Romano always seemed to have a feel for success on two wheels. He was championship runner-up of the Italian 125GP series and also competed in the Spanish competition of the same class. In 2011 he became European 125cc champion, which earned him a seat in Moto3.
For the past ten years, Romano has competed in Moto2 as well as Moto3. Despite never winning a championship, he does hold the record for most wins in Moto3. This year, Romano will ride for Rivacold snipers alongside fellow MACNA rider Matteo Bertelle. Will he finally grab that long-cherished crown in 2023?
Born at the start of 2004 in Monselice, Italy, Matteo spent the majority of his career racing in the CIV Italian series. A few seasons he spent in the Spanish CEV before competing in the Red Bull Rookies cup for three years.
In 2022, Matteo made his debut in Moto3. Due to an injury incurred during a crash at the Sachsenring and the surgery that was needed, it became a shortened season. This year, Matteo will ride for Rivacold Snipers alongside fellow MACNA rider Romano Fenati.
Just before the start of the new millennium, Stefano came into this world in Rimini, Italy. In 2012 he started competing in the Red Bull Rookies cup until he went to Moto3 in 2015. Another two years later, Manzo joined Moto2 and eventually made the step to World SSP.
Stefano ended his rookie season as 6th overall with 209 points and a beautiful win in Portimão – Triumph’s first! For 2023 he received a seat at Ten Kate Racing; the team that delivered a championship winning bike in the past two years.
After being born in Monaco in 2003, Oliver’s moto journey began at the Australian Titles in Wyalong when he was just 10 years of age. Three years later, he found himself riding at the ranch with his father – legend Troy Bayliss – and The Doctor himself. Within twelve months of that unforgettable day, Oli joined Cube Racing in the Australian SBK 300.
In 2022, Oli ended his rookie season in World SSP with 65 points which earned him 16th place overall. This year he is set on improving with his new team D34G Racing, who’re putting him on a Panigale V2. (Yeah, we know; it makes us nostalgic as well)
