2022 FIM Supersport World Champion

THE SWISS MISSILE!

Over one-hundred points clear with still a round to go, Dominique Aegerter – Yamaha bossed the FIM Supersport World Championship from the get-go this season.

Extremely experienced despite being just thirty-two years old, Aegerter has been banging bars in grand prix racing since 2006 when he contested a handful of 125cc GPs.

Moving up to Moto2 in 2010, the Swiss racer established himself as a top-ten regular and won his first grand prix in Germany in 2014.

Aegerter has enjoyed a very fruitful 2022. Not only has he retained his FIM Supersport World Championship, he has also raced to the MotoE crown for battery-powered bikes.

The defence of his Supersport title kicked off with a second-placed finish at the opening round at Aragon in Spain, but it was just a minor hiccup on the road to glory.

Winner of the second race at Aragon, he then embarked on an impressive win-streak that carried him through both races at Assen in Holland, Estoril in Portugal, Misano in San Marino and Donington Park in Great Britain.

A disastrous weekend in the Czech Republic followed where he failed to add to his total, though a three-one at Magny-Cours in France was backed up with a double win at Catalunya and he pressed home his advantage with a four-one on Portugal’s Algarve coast at the start of October.

Any slim hopes his rivals had of usurping him as champion were laid to rest when he raced to another domineering double at the end of October in Villicum in Argentina, and he sewed up the title three weeks later at Mandalika in Indonesia with a fourth in the opening race.

2021 FIM Supersport World Champion

SWISS ON A ROLL! 

Extremely experienced despite being just thirty-one years old, Dominique Aegerter has been banging bars in grand prix racing since 2006 when he contested a handful of 125cc GPs. 

Moving up to Moto2 in 2010, the Swiss racer established himself as a top-ten regular and won his first grand prix in Germany in 2014. 

Up until this year’s FIM Supersport World Championship he had enjoyed the majority of his success in the MotoE class where he was third in his first year and improved to second in 2021. 

A two-time podium finisher at the famed Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race, he had to wait until this year to prove himself to be a World-beater – and he did it in style!  

In fact, Aegerter wrapped up the World SSP title one round early in his rookie season in the class – despite missing a race due to MotoE commitments – following the penultimate round at El Villicum in Argentina! 

Leaving South America with a sixty-eight-point lead and only a maximum of fifty up for grabs at the series finale in Indonesia, Aegerter could reflect on a truly dazzling debut season in the class. 

With one round still to go he had won ten races and claimed fourteen race podiums with double wins coming at Misano in Italy, Assen in Holland and the Circuito de Navarra in Spain. 

The good news for fans of the series – and the bad news for his rivals – is that Aegerter plans to defend his title in 2022.
