Niccolò Antonelli



Niccolò Antonelli is among the favourites to win the Moto3 class of the 2017 World Championship, a category he seeks to conquer for the sixth time. This year he is making his debut as a member of the official KTM squad.


The young Romagna ace, born in Cattolica on 23 February 1996, hoarded youth championship titles before reaching the 2012 World Motorcycle Championship with Team Gresini. The championship stage endorsement came in 2015, his first year with the Ongetta team, with whom he obtained his first victories and his first championship podiums, ending the season in 5th place. Nicco then joined the KTM Red Bull Ajo team in 2017 to conquer a 2nd place in Japan but at the end of the year he parted ways with the Austrian squad to join the SIC58 Squadra Corse.
