Alex Escrig set for MotoE™ debut with Tech3

The young Spaniard will partner Garzo at Tech3 E-Racing for the 2022 campaign

Alex Escrig will be joining the Tech3 E-Racing team next year in the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup alongside Spanish compatriot Hector Garzo. The 17-year-old native from Valencia will make his debut in the electric class at the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez, the first MotoE™ races of the fourteen scheduled in 2022, and already has his eyes set on the prize.

The young rider competed in the Spanish championship in the 80cc class in 2015 and 2016, before he contested for two seasons in the Spanish PreMoto3 category and finished 3rd overall in 2018. This great result allowed him to get his ticket to the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup for the 2019 and 2020 seasons, during which he managed to finish one time on the podium. Escrig is coming out of an incredible 2021 season as he is the new European Stock 600 champion, having won 10 races out of 11.

Alex Escrig: “For next year, my objective is obviously to win the championship. But before everything, I am looking forward to learning about the bike and I want to have fun riding it. The MotoE bike will be different from what I know, but I am very keen to discover new riding techniques. I want to gain experience in fighting for world championships with older riders who are more experienced than me.

“Hector Garzo will be my teammate for the second time of my young career, and I have known him since I was 4 years old. It will be a pleasure to share a box with him again. We have a good relationship, he has experience in MotoE, so I hope that we will share podiums together.”

Herve Poncharal: “It is a great pleasure to announce that the Tech3 E-Racing team has now finalized its 2022 line-up. Alongside Hector Garzo, we are delighted to welcome Alex Escrig, a young and promising rider whom we have been following for a few seasons. We have been amazed by his 2021 season as he won the European Stock 600 championship with 10 victories out of 11 races.

“Clearly the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup is becoming more and more attractive for the riders, and we are proud to be bringing a mix of experience and youth with our new line-up into the electric class. Alex will dispute his rookie season and will have a lot to learn, but I am sure that we can count on Hector to give him a few tips as they know each other already, both being from Valencia. We can’t wait to be in Jerez for the first test session of 2022, and I am sure that our riders will be fighting for podiums and victories next year.”
