The Moto3 rookie of the year contender will continue with the team for 2021.
The 2019 Moto3 Junior World Champion rider has impressed so far this season with multiple points finishes and a best result of P7. He also finished the Andalucia GP in P4 before losing places due to a penalty.
Jeremy Alcoba was pleased with the news saying,“I’m absolutely over the moon for the fact that a team like Gresini Racing has chosen to bet on me for next year as well. I must admit that it is sort of ‘liberating’ as I can now ride with less pressure, at least from this point of view. It’s obvious that this first year is a learning experience: we are working well and things are going the right way, but in 2021 we will try to raise the bar a bit, even though this shortened season is not helping ahead of the next one.”
Team manager Fausto Gresini continued, “I must admit that Jeremy is a talented rider and very methodical from one side and a very nice guy on the other – which is something that cannot be given for granted. The results so far in 2020, in such a difficult and competitive category like the quarter-litre class one, are backing up the choice we made to invest on his and the contract extension for 2021 was a pure formality. I’m absolutely convinced that Jeremy’s potential is huge, and I hope he can be an integral part of our sporting plans for a long time.”
