▶ Biography

Jordi Torres is an all-rounder of our sport, a very complete rider who has always made the most of the opportunities he has had. The rider from Rubí (Barcelona) has competed in MotoGP and Superbikes, the top categories of the respective World Championships, but it was in the Spanish Championship and then in MotoE where he managed to reach the top. 

Used to riders who arrive to the World Championship in their teens, Jordi Torres got his chance "late". In 2011, when he was almost 24 years old and on the way to win his first Spanish Championship title, he jumped to the Moto2 World Championship with Aspar Team to replace injured Julián Simón. The following year was very similar for him: he revalidated his crown in the CEV and returned to the World Championship, this time to replace Toni Elías. 

At the age of 25, the Catalan became a permanent Aspar Team rider and formed part of one of the most memorable duos of the team with Nico Terol, his teammate for two seasons and now, on his return to the team, his new boss. It was with Aspar Team that he got his first World Championship win, in 2013 at Sachsenring, and a decade later he hopes to continue bringing success to the Openbank Aspar Team in a category with which he has a special relationship. 

In 2020, the world changed completely. Torres was ready to compete in the Superbike World Championship and MotoE World Cup. However, the compression of the calendar in the final part of the season due to the world situation meant that he had to make a decision that would be key for his career: he could just participate in only one competition. 

It was not easy, but, in the end, Torres opted to fight for the electric category. In his debut year, he won the title after finishing on the podium in four of the seven races, and the following year he retained the crown in the final race to become the most successful rider in the history of the category. 

In 2023, Jordi Torres expects to fight for the championship again and to offer the first title to the Openbank Aspar Team. Jordi comes back home and, together with his entire team, will fight to bring the Openbank Aspar Team to the top.
