After a hugely promising maiden FIM Superbike World Championship campaign, Garrett Gerloff will enter a second season with the GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team with his eyes on consistently fighting for podiums and race wins.
An incredible MotoAmerica Supersport debut in 2015 brought Garrett two pole positions, ten podiums and two victories on his way to third in the championship standings.
In 2016 he went one better, taking three pole positions, six race wins and podium finishes in all but one race to win his first MotoAmerica Supersport Championship. 2017 saw Garrett successfully defend his Supersport crown, earning the title for the second consecutive year with his Monster Energy Yamalube Y.E.S. Graves Yamaha R6 and taking eight pole positions and seventeen podium finishes that included eleven wins.
In 2018 Garrett graduated to the MotoAmerica Superbike class for the first time with the Monster Energy Yamalube Yamaha Factory Racing Team, starting strong to take a podium in the opening round and a total of five solid podium finishes in his rookie season.
2019 was yet another improvement for Garett, finishing a tightly contested championship in third place with 15 podiums including four wins.
In 2020 Garett remained with the Yamaha family, joining the GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team for their second season in WorldSBK. After a solid start, the 25-year-old improved race-after-race and took a maiden podium in Barcelona. He added two further rostrums at the season finale in Estoril and heads into his second season confident of progressing further.
