FIM Awards: 2022 World Champions rewarded in Rimini

The gala returns to toast the biggest winners on two wheels in 2022

The FIM Awards took place at the Palacongressi Rimini – IEG Expo in 2022, gathering Champions from across different motorcycle disciplines to celebrate their achievements this season.

2022 FIM MotoGP™ World Champion Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) celebrated his first premier class title as he took to the stage, receiving his FIM medal after an incredible season.






In depth: King Bagnaia reveals key to his historic comeback

Bagnaia was joined by 2022 Moto2™ World Champion Augusto Fernandez (Red Bull KTM Ajo) as he ends the year on a high note ahead of a new adventure in MotoGP™ next season, and 2022 Moto3™ World Champion Izan Guevara (GASGAS Aspar Team) similarly signed off from the season in style before he moves into the intermediate class.

Others present included 2022 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Champion Alvaro Bautista as he celebrated his WorldSBK title and represented another Ducati success, as well as 2022 Finetwork FIM JuniorGP™ Champion Jose Antonio Rueda. Rueda made history as the first rider to take that crown and win the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2022, and he’ll move into the Moto3™ World Championship next year.

The gala brings the curtain down on the final event on the calendar, with winter break underway and the countdown to the Shakedown Test very much on. MotoGP™ will be back in action in early February, so save the pre-season dates and get ready to enjoy another incredible season of competition. Who will return to the gala in 2023? We’ll start to find out soon!
