Jonas Folger was born on the 13th of August in 1993 in Mühldorf, Germany and he began racing after sampling a motocross bike on holiday at just three years of age, which ignited his passion for motorcycles. After working his way through the German youth leagues, he joined the MotoGP Academy when he was only twelve years old and he went on to impressively complete the Spanish National Championship in third in 2006.

Two years later he was given his break in the World Championship where he made six starts in the tightly contested 125cc class. His talent and the notable results lead to him securing a full-time ride in 2009 and here, the rapid German shone as he sped to the Rookie of the Year title and clinched a superb 2nd place finish at the French Grand Prix.

Folger maintained his solid form in the lightweight class over the following two seasons, before surging to his maiden win at the British GP in 2011. In the following year, the regulations changed and the series switched over to the new 250cc four-stroke Moto3 engines, and Jonas endured a tricky start to the campaign, but after switching teams mid-way through the campaign, his fortune turned and he recorded a memorable win and three further podiums.

He then contested another season in Moto3 where he ended up on the rostrum four times before moving up to the intermediate class in 2014 and here he highlighted his talent by adapting to the 600cc bikes quickly by finishing in the top three twice in the opening six rounds. Folger rode to some impressive results in 2015 as he closed his campaign in 6th after winning two races, as well as finishing in 2nd in Japan and 3rd in Malaysia. In his last season in Moto2, he stormed through the rain to take the victory at the Czech Grand Prix as well as scoring four additional podiums throughout the year.

In 2017, the exciting young German adapted quickly to the 1000cc Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP bike and the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team in order to enhance his talent fighting for good results, including a fabulous second place at his home Grand Prix in Germany. After missing the last four races of the championship, he concluded his first MotoGP year in 10th and as the second best young rider in the category ahead of Alex Rins and Sam Lowes.

Jonas Folger will resume his progress in 2018 with the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team.

French motorcycle star Johann Zarco was born on the 16th July 1990, and quickly developed a passion for motorcycles at a young age. His first taste if racing was contesting in pocket bike events in Europe and specifically in Italy, after linking up with manager Laurent Fellon in 2003. The Cannes born rider quickly advanced through the ranks in Europe and grabbed global attention by winning the MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2007.

He then began his World Championship career in 2009 by contesting in the 125cc class. After two years of constant and impressive progress, his standout campaign was in 2011, where he superbly finished as the series runner-up in the ultra-competitive shootout and he clinched ten podiums, four pole positions and a maiden victory at the Japanese GP.

His talent saw him graduate up to the intermediate class and here he seized the Rookie of the Year title after delivering some noteworthy results, such as a 4th place at the Portuguese event in what was only his third race on a Moto2 bike. The momentum continued in the following year, where he stormed to his first podium at the Italian Grand Prix, and also produced another solid display by finishing on the podium at the Valencia GP. 2014 yielded more success with four podiums and seven front row qualifying performances as he carried on turning heads.

Then, Zarco dominated the 2015 season by blazing to eight victories and only missing out on the podium on four occasions as he sealed the championship win at the 15th round of the calendar in Japan. Furthermore, the French star broke the record for the highest number of points collected in a season in the intermediate class as he scored 352.

In 2016, Zarco continued from where he left off and he once again brilliantly took the championship to become the only rider to achieve the title twice in succession in the moto2 class, after obtaining seven victories and seven pole positions.

Last season he did his highly anticipated step up to MotoGP with the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team and together, the rider and the crew sought to adjust to the Yamaha YZR-M1 at their best, before he started to consistently fight for the podium in the highest category. He completed his 2017 season with the award of the best young rider in MotoGP, plus earned the laurels for the best independent rider.

Johann Zarco will continue his adventure with the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team in 2018, aiming to display his incredible talent yet again.
