Miguel Oliveira

  • Team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing
  • Nation Portugal
  • Date of birth 04/01/1995
  • Place of birth Pragal, Portugal
Intelligent, demanding (of himself) and thoughtful; Miguel Oliveira is a rider who takes an atypical approach to achieve the same goal as his rivals. The multi-faceted Portuguese is a man of many talents and myriad interests, and the busier he is, the better he seems to ride.

Oliveira likes things to be just right. If you’re looking for improvisational brilliance and someone who makes order out of chaos, he's not your man; give him a good bike with a clear plan and a way to win, and he can look untouchable.

It seems improbable that the pride of Portugal hasn't raced a MotoGP bike at the Island before, but a scary 300km/h-plus FP4 crash in high winds in 2019 saw him miss the race with multiple injuries to both hands. It was a rare down day in Australia for Oliveira, who absolutely flew at the Island in the junior classes.
