What is the Road to MotoGP™?

The Road to MotoGP™ is the collective name for the competitions and programmes for young riders that MotoGP™ supports around the world. Those who want to have a career in motorcycle racing should only need talent, passion and drive to succeed, and economic factors shouldn’t play a role. So we created the Road to MotoGP™, providing millions of young riders the opportunity to excel.  

Unrivalled in motorsport, the programme increases accessibility in the race towards global equality. On track, riders have the chance to compete equally, foster their skills and learn sporting values. Off track, they also get the chance to improve their English and communication skills, and work with rider coaches and support teams.
