About

Jules Cluzel joins forces with GMT94 Yamaha WorldSSP supported Team for 2019 as he will try another attempt to the championship title, after having missed out on the crown in a dramatic 2018 season finale.

Starting his racing career in his home country of France, Cluzel made a solid experience aboard 125cc machines and narrowly missed out on titles in the 125cc Honda CBR Junior Cup as well as his domestic 125 series. Cluzel made his World Championship debut in the French GP as a wildcard and then continued to make his way through the ranks, riding in the Moto2™ World Championship from for 2 seasons before moving across to the WorldSBK paddock.

The Frenchman soon became a strong championship fighter in the FIM Supersport World Championship. 2016 saw Cluzel come back from an 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.

In 2018 he was able to take five wins, one second and a third place with Yamaha, but a crash on the final round meant that he was out from the championship battle. Taking the leap over to new GMT94 Yamaha WorldSSP supported team the French will put his all to get the title in 2019.
