About

2020 sees the return of 2018 Independent Champion Xavi Fores to the World Superbike paddock, as he embarks on a fresh adventure in the form of the race-winning Kawasaki Puccetti Racing team.

Spanish rider Fores is a veteran of many different international motorcycle racing championships, including stints in 125cc and Moto2™ and several seasons in WorldSSP, as a regular top ten finisher.  Fores has honed his skills in the FIM CEV Repsol, winning the Stock Extreme Championship in 2010 and 2013 as well as the European Superstock 1000 Championship in 2013, and IDM Superbike Championship in 2014.

After riding on behalf of injured Davide Giugliano in 2015, Fores became a permanent WorldSBK rider in 2016 with Barni Racing Team, remaining with the Italian team for three seasons. 2016 also saw him replace Loris Baz in MotoGP™ at the Misano World Circuit.

Fores had a strong 2017 season onboard the Panigale R, followed by an even more impressive 2018 in which he led several races, scored five podiums and became the Independent Riders Champion. After a brief excursion to the British Superbike Championship in 2019, Fores returns in 2020 stronger than ever.
