25-year-old Xavi Vierge was born in Barcelona, Spain, on 30 April 1997.

He finished as runner-up in the 2015 FIM CEV Moto2 European Championship and made his debut in the Moto2 World Championship that same year, competing with the Tech 3 Team from round ten onwards. He remained with that squad as a permanent rider for the following two years, ending the 2016 season as Rookie of the Year and achieving his first podium in 2017 (Japan) during a strong season in which he regularly battled at the front.

Two more podium finishes (Argentina and Australia) resulted from his collaboration with the Dynavolt Intact GP team in 2018, while over the last three years, first as teammate to Alex Marquez in the EG 0,0 Marc VDS garage, and most recently with Petronas Sprinta Racing, he has been a regular Moto2 top-ten finisher (ten times in 2021) and scored another podium (3rd) this year at Catalunya, ending the season in 11th position overall.

In 2022 Vierge will race in the WorldSBK Championship as factory Honda rider in the Team HRC.
