David Alonso got on a bike for the first time at the age of five and has not been able to leave it aside since then. The young rider, who has Colombian ancestry, has spent more than a third of his life with the Aspar Team, creating a special story. In 2023, David Alonso will write a new chapter, the most important of all because, after a lot of sacrifice and effort, he has the opportunity to participate in his first World Championship with the team that has seen him grow up.
David joined the Aspar Team family when he was only eleven years old. His potential, together with his great human values, were decisive for Nico Terol to sign him for the Aspar Team Junior.
Together with Nico, the young rider has followed an amazing progression, becoming one of the most promising young riders formed in the Aspar Team Junior. During his years, David has become the most successful Aspar Team Junior rider, winning three titles in five seasons. In 2018 he became Spanish 85GP Champion, in 2020 he won the European Talent Cup and the following year he won the Red Bull Rookies Cup, a competition he combined with JuniorGP.
After closing this learning period, David Alonso is looking forward to his first season as a Moto3 rider. And he will do it with his main supporter, Nico Terol, who has followed him in every step of his career and also makes the leap to the World Championship, in his case as sports director of the team, to begin a new era that will be special for both of them.
David Alonso has already had the chance to make his World Championship debut after competing in the 2021 San Marino GP as a substitute and in the 2022 Portuguese GP as a wildcard rider. However, in 2023 he has the opportunity to compete as a permanent rider. Alonso will try to prove that, even he is the youngest rider on the grid, he is ready to fight against the best.
