31 Garrett Gerloff


Date of Birth


Gerloff opted for a new home in 2023 as he switched both team and manufacturer. Three successful years at the GRT Yamaha squad came to an end and he will embark on a new adventure in 2023 with the Bonovo Action BMW squad; switching Yamaha for BMW.

Gerloff spent most of the past decade finding success at each rung of the USA motorcycling ladder. After picking up multiple trophies and wins in the WERA National series and the Daytona Sportbike championship, Gerloff landed in the MotoAmerica Supersport class in 2015, finishing 3rd on his first attempt. He would go two better in 2016 and again in 2017, becoming a two-time champion by the age of 22.

This success earned him a move up to the MotoAmerica Superbike class in 2018, in the factory Yamaha squad. Gerloff dealt with the steep learning curve admirably, picking up five podiums on course to fifth in the standings in his rookie year, but his sophomore season is when Gerloff truly shone. Four wins and a further 11 podiums across 20 races were enough to claim third in the standings in 2019 – just 51 points off the Champion.

A first podium in 2020 in Barcelona was then bettered at Estoril in the final round, whilst 2021 saw him on the podium in the first round. However, a string of incidents with other riders – most notably, clashing with Toprak Razgatlioglu from the lead of the race at Turn 1 on Lap 1 at Assen – knocked his confidence and Gerloff wouldn’t mount the podium for the rest of the year.
