We have already written in this post about 5 famous people who, despite not being very tall, do not leave aside their passion for two wheels. They are actors, drivers, mayors or journalists who are famous for having this passion and live it without problems. They have been seen more than once riding motorcycles of all kinds. Today we introduce you to short motorcycle pilots, because in the world of motorcycle championships there are also people “of all sizes”.
If you have read the other article you will know that Dani Pedrosa is one of the shortest motorcycle world champions in this field. This spanish biker born in 1985 is only 1.58 m tall.
Marc Marquez competes in Moto GP and has won 8 Motorcycle World Championship titles in three different categories: 125cc (2010), Moto2 (2012) and six times in MotoGP (2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019).
His height is only 1.68 m.
Alfonso Pons, who you may know as Sito Pons, is a Spanish former motorcycle racer, a two-time 250cc world champion in 1988 and 1989 with Honda, and currently the team manager of the Pons Racing team.
We do not know precisely how tall Sito Pons is because we have not found this information online but who remembers his best years has no doubt, he was not the tallest rider in the championships in which he competed.
Jorge Martinez Aspar
Many know him as “Aspar” but his real second surname is “Salvadores” and the nickname comes from the profession of his grandfather who was an espadrille maker, “espardenyer” in Valencian. His fame became international in the 80’s when he became world champion three times in 80cc, in 1986, 1987 and 1988 and once in 125cc, in 1988.
Again, we don’t know his height, but those who followed Moto GP in those years will surely remember his not excessively tall stature.
Andrea Dovizioso: one of the short Italian motorcycle riders
This Italian rider, known to some as “Dovi”, was born in 1986 and was world champion in the 125cc class in 2004 and runner-up in the 250cc class in 2006 and 2007.
He is 1.65 m tall and this has not been a problem to ride motorcycles from brands such as Yamaha and Honda.
