Biography

 

Hector Barbera began his World Championship career with the Aspar team, and after finishing runner-up in the 125 class in 2004 moved to the 250 category for five seasons. He completed the final season of the 250 category in 2009 runner-up in the championship after winning three races along with five other podium results. Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez placed his faith in Barbera as the sole entry on his new MotoGP™ team in 2010, and was repaid with a diligent first year from the rookie in which he scored points at every round but one with a best result of eighth at both the Le Mans and Valencia rounds.

 

The Valencian rider continued on the Desmosedici of the Aspar Team in 2011, improving his best result with a sixth in Jerez. A move in 2012 to the Pramac Racing Team saw the Spaniard still aboard Ducati machinery for the new 1000cc class, yet some big crashes made his year a challenging one. In 2013 he rode the BQR-FTR bike of Avintia Racing, ending the season 16th overall. In 2014 he made a mid-season switch to Ducati machinery and in 2015 he continues riding the Italian bike with Avintia alongside Mike Di Meglio.
