|Valencia Grand Prix||17 Nov 2019|
Alex Rins won the CEV in 2011 before moving up to the Moto3™ World Championship in 2012 and gaining the title of Rookie of the Year. A title contender down to the last corner in 2013 after more wins and podiums, the Spaniard was just beaten to the crown by compatriot Maverick Viñales. After a more difficult 2014 affected slightly by injury, Rins moved to Moto2™ for 2015 and was Rookie of the Year, taking wins in his debut season in the intermediate class. A title challenger in 2016, the former national Champion finished the season in third after more impressive wins and podiums, and moves up to MotoGP™ in 2017 with Team Suzuki Ecstar. Despite some trouble with injury and missed races, Rins was impressive and took some top five results – something he’ll be wanting to better in 2018 as he starts his sophomore season with Suzuki.
