Swiss rider Dominque Aegerter first arrived on the world stage in 2006, riding in the final two rounds of the 125cc World Championship at Estoril and Valencia. The then 16-year-old earned a full-time ride in the class for 2007, becoming a consistent top 10 finisher, before stepping up to Moto2 in 2010.
Over the next 10 seasons, Aegerter would claim seven podium finishes, taking victory at the 2014 German Grand Prix and twice finished fifth in the championship, in 2013 and 2014. In 2020, the Rohrbach-born rider joined the MotoE World Cup grid and demonstrated his ability to quickly adapt to new machinery by scoring four podium finishes in the opening four races, including two victories at Jerez and Misano, and eventually claimed third in the standings.
Aegerter then looked to WorldSSP for 2021, and joined the Ten Kate Yamaha WorldSSP Team, as he hopes to fight for the title with one of the championship's most successful teams.
