About

Starting his racing career in his home country of France, Cluzel made his World Championship debut in the 2005 French GP as a wildcard in the 125cc class. He earned a permanent ride in the 250cc World Championship one year later, finally winning his first race at the 2010 British GP (Moto2™).

In 2012, Cluzel switched paddocks, taking a Honda to second position in WorldSSP. 2013 saw him move up to WorldSBK onboard a Suzuki, the highlight of which was a fantastic second position at Silverstone.

Cluzel returned to WorldSSP in 2014 and has remained a championship contender ever since, winning races in all but one season (2017) and finishing amongst the top three in the standings in all but one (2015). 2018 and 2019 even saw the Frenchman enter the final race in Qatar with a chance of winning the Championship, unsuccessfully on both occasions. Remaining with the all-French GMT94 Yamaha team for 2020, could it be third time lucky for the mighty Cluzel?
