Born in San Severino Marche on 11 November 1996, Baldassarri boasts an impressive record. Red Bull Rookies Cup champion in 2011, he made his debut in the Moto3 World Championship in 2013, before moving to Moto2 the following year, a category much more suited to his physical characteristics.
After a season of learning, Baldassarri scored his first podium in the category in 2015, before taking his maiden victory in 2016. After a year of transition, he showed his talent again in 2018, when he returned to winning ways and finished four more times on the podium, ending the season inside the top five.
2019 opened in fabulous fashion, with three wins in a row, while he went on to finish seventh in the final standings. He was on the podium again in 2020, but in 2021 some issues prevented him from shining. In eight Moto2 seasons, Baldassarri scored a total of five wins and 12 podiums.
Now it is time for the 25-year-old to begin a new adventure in WorldSSP, together with the team that has won the title in two of the last three seasons. Evan Bros Yamaha is ready to aim high in a category that has been completely transformed for the upcoming campaign.
