Remy Gardner has been confirmed as a Tech3 KTM Factory Racing rider for the 2022 MotoGP™ season. The Australian currently sits atop the Moto2™ championship leaderboard with one race win and five podiums to his name this season.
The 23-year-old made his Grand Prix debut in San Marino in 2014. Since then, he spent one season in Moto3™ and five in Moto2™. His first podium in Moto2™ came in 2019 at the Grand Prix of Argentina.
Last weekend's victory in Mugello marked his second winner's trophy in Moto2™.
"I’m extremely happy that KTM have given me this opportunity. It’s a dream come true for me and what we have worked for up until this point. It’s an incredible chance for me and I cannot wait to ride the bike. I just want to thank KTM for believing in me. Right now we need to focus on finishing 2021 in a strong way. I want to thank also everyone who has supported me to reach MotoGP. We’re just getting started,” Gardner said.
KTM Motorsport Director Pit Beirer said, “It’s a real pleasure for us to bring Remy to MotoGP next season because we knew about his speed and ability for Moto2 and he has confirmed that potential. We believe there is much more to come from him and it’s important he has this opportunity to keep growing. Remy is a typical racer. He’s super-determined and never gives up. He’s exciting to watch and we’re looking forward to working with him in this next step. Again, we’re also showing that the KTM GP Academy can give the right opportunity for riders that want to go all the way.”
