After competing in all the European Rounds of the 2018 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, Michael Ruben Rinaldi is set for a new challenge in 2019 as he makes the step over to BARNI Racing Team.
First joining the WorldSBK paddock in 2014, Rinaldi joined the European Superstock 600 class taking a best result of fifth around his home circuit of Imola. Rinaldi made the switch from Yamaha to Kawasaki for the 2015 season and took his first win around Jerez.
Making the step up into the European Superstock 1000 class for 2016, Rinaldi was able to learn a lot in his rookie season, but it was in 2017 that he was able to secure the European Superstock 1000 title with four victories overall.
In 2018 the 22-year-old Italian rider moved up to WorldSBK with the Aruba.it Racing – Junior Team showing promising performances and he is now ready to show off all is potential in his first full-time season on board the Ducati Panigale V4 of the BARNI Racing Team.
