The first Chilean to race in WorldSBK, Maximilian Scheib is an exciting addition to the series for 2020. The 24-year-old took his first steps on off-road bikes, before turning to road racing as a young teenager, competing across South America. Still a teenager, Scheib crossed the pond to compete in the FIM CEV European Superbike Championship, finishing his second season – 2016 – in second place.
That same year, Scheib made his first appearances in the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup, competing as a wildcard. In his first race he finished 9th; in the second, Scheib won outright. His success earned him a full-time ride in the series, with eight podiums (one of them a race win) picked up over the next two years onboard an Aprilia. The Chilean rider made history at the end of the 2018 season, joining the WorldSBK MV Agusta team for the final two rounds of the year and picking up points in his first race.
After becoming Spanish Superbike champion in 2019, Scheib becomes a full-time WorldSBK rider with the Orelac Racing VerdNatura team, at the age of 24.
