Iker Garcia Abella arrived into 2021 having won the Spanish Moto4 Championship, then he put into practice what he learned in that season and, from sixth on the grid, the 17-years-old Airohrider battled through the victory, becoming the first winner of the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup.
This title earned him an incredible promotion to the WorldSSP300.
The Airohrider reflect on his 2021 season and on what he learned: “It was an incredible feeling for me. It’s really amazing to go down in the records as the first-ever Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup winner and I am still very happy looking back on the season. I learned a lot of things that will be important going into WorldSSP300. Managing the races and especially the last laps when there is a big group of riders all trying to win is something that I now have good experience with. You have to be aggressive, but also at the right time, the first laps can be crazy but the goal is to not lose touch with the front battle.”
We can’t wait to support Iker Garcia Abella in this extraordinary challenge.
