2015 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies world champion, 2x podium in Moto3 debut season 2016
Bo Bendsneyder dominated the 2015 Red Bull Rookies Cup, with eight wins, two more podium places and the world title. The Dutchman had already shown a promise when he won the second Red Bull Rookies Cup race in 2014 in Assen, in his debut in the series. In addition to the Rookies Cup, he also participated with the Dutch Racing Team in 2014 in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 Junior World Championship, where he took third place in Le Mans and took points in every round in which he participated.
His world title in the Rookies Cup was rewarded with a place in the Moto3 championship with the Red Bull KTM Ajo team in 2016. In his debut year, Bendsneyder was on the podium twice: Silverstone and Sepang. After a second year at KTM Ajo, in which his length played an increasingly disadvantageous role, Bendsneyder moved to Moto2 in 2018 with Tech 3 on the Mistral machine. Due to a bizarre accident in Japan, where a part of the engine pierced his lower leg, the season came to an early end.
In 2019, Bendsneyder raced for NTS RW Racing GP for the first time. It was not an easy season, but Bendsneyder managed to finish very regularly in the points on the new machine. He will also race for the Dutch team in 2020.
