Cameron Beaubier Headed To Moto2™ World Championship

It’s official: Five-time MotoAmerica Superbike Champion Cameron Beaubier is taking over for Joe Roberts on the American Racing Team in the Moto2 World Championship for 2021-2022 with the 27-year-old Californian putting pen to paper on a two-year contract this week and then talking about it in a joint press conference with Yamaha and American Racing team owner Eitan Butbul today at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. However, as it turns out Beaubier always had his eyes on the MotoGP World Championship. In addition to his five MotoAmerica Superbike Championships (2015, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020), Beaubier also won the AMA Daytona SportBike Championship on a Yamaha YZF-R6 in 2013. Beaubier moving to the Moto2 World Championship and Gerloff’s late-season success in the World Superbike Championship have brought worldwide attention to MotoAmerica as the feeder series Dorna was hoping for. With Beaubier, Roberts and Gerloff all racing at the front of the Moto2 and Superbike World Championships, respectively, the strength of the U.S. series is now beginning to bear fruit.
