About

2017 World Supersport third position finisher Jules Cluzel began his racing career in his home country of France, getting some solid experience aboard 125cc machines. Narrowly missing out on titles in the 125cc Honda CBR Junior Cup as well as his domestic 125 series, he made his World Championship debut in the French GP with a wildcard. The 29 year old made his way through the ranks, riding in the Moto2™ World Championship in 2010 spending two full seasons in the intermediate class, he was able to make steady progress.

From here he moved across to the WorldSBK paddock and became a championship fighter in the FIM Supersport World Championship.  2016 saw the Frenchman come back from injury stronger than ever to finish runner up, winning twice with five podiums on the MV Agusta. Moving back to Honda for 2017 – with whom he made his series debut back in 2012 – Cluzel had a difficult season as he struggled with consistency but took six podium finishes and one pole position. Taking the leap over to new team, NRT for 2018 the French rider will hope to have a stronger season with the YZF-R6 and continue to finish on the podium.
