Hi, my name is Bo Bendsneyder. My discipline is Moto3. I was born on 4 March 1999 in Rotterdam.


Like most young hotshots, Bo Bendsneyder started his motorcycle racing apprenticeship early on in life, and when he first jumped on a motorcycle at six years of age it was a relationship that blossomed fast.

Soon, Bo was racing minibikes and competing in the Dutch minimoto championship, before he stepped up to the Dutch Moriwaki Cup. Titles in the prestigious series quickly followed in 2011 and 2012, and the rising young star was getting plenty of attention.

A season in the German Moto3 championship reinforced Bo’s credentials as one of the most exciting young riders around, and he made the cut for the Red Bull Rookies Cup in 2014.

His debut in the series was a victory at his home round at the famous Assen circuit, which helped him on the way to a ninth-placed overall finish for the season.

In 2015 Bo was a title favourite, and he delivered on his promise in true style. A dominant campaign saw Bo blow away the competition to be crowned champion, ending the year with a substantial 49-point advantage over his closest challenger.

Next, Bo stepped up to the Moto3 World Championship with the Red Bull KTM Ajo Motorsport team, a set-up well-known for its work with extremely talented prospects. His debut season was another milestone to remember as he scored two podium finishes, and in 2017 he continues in the team with victories in sight.
