Biography

Jack Miller was crowned the 2013 65cc Australian Dirt Track Champion at the age of eight and tried his hand at road racing in Australia’s Motorcycle Road Race Development Association series.

In 2011, aged 16, he was racing in the 125GP category of Germany’s IDM Superbike Championship, where his grit and raw talent earned him a berth in the 2012 Moto3 World Championship.

After showing promise in his first two seasons on Honda machinery, he was drafted into the competitive Ajo Motorsport KTM squad for 2014, where he was immediately fighting for race wins. He scored four podiums in the opening five races, including three wins and four consecutive poles.

The title went down to the last corner of the last race where he lost it to Spanish rival Alex Marquez.

He jumped directly to the premier class the following year where, once the flitter of the big time wore off he began focusing on the task at hand, his potential shone through.

His first premier-class win came at the rain-affected 2016 Dutch TT aboard a Honda. He moved to Pramac Ducati for 2018 where he’s never looked faster or more comfortable on a MotoGP machine and, with a GP19 bike at his disposal next year, we can expect some podium finishes.

The popular Australian has won at Phillip Island before, finishing first in the Moto3 class in 2014. His highest finish in the MotoGP at Phillip Island has been seventh, upgrading to the Ducati GP19 in 2019 - Miller will be looking to capatalise at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix 2019.
