17-year-old Andy Verdoïa started his two-wheeled career at 5 years of age aboard a YamahaPW50, stepping up to motorcycles with a gearbox two years later and finishing as vice-champion of France in the 50cc class before his ninth birthday.
A fourth place in the 70cc FCM Championship in 2012 was followed in 2013 by a top ten finish in the highly competitive 80cc Spanish Championship. Verdoïa stayed in Spain for 2014, winning the Spanish Moto4 Championship.
The French youngster contested the 2019 Supersport 300 World Championship with BCD Yamaha MS Racing, as part of Yamaha’s R3 bLU cRU project. He had a strong season, taking two front row starts and two podiums to finish fourth overall in the series.
In 2020 Andy moves up to the Supersport class. He stays with the same team and stablemate Galang Hendra Pratama at the renamed bLU cRU Yamaha WorldSSP Team, where he will aim to improve yet again and score podiums in his debut Supersport season aboard the R6.
