Team CFMoto Racing Pruestel GP


Xavier Artigas
Born on May 27th 2003 in Barcelona, Spain

Almost 20 years old, Xavier Artigas is still far from having exploited all his talent. Pure product of the Spanish scene, the Catalan rider has climbed all the steps of the FIM CEV championships. Winner of the European Talent Cup in 2018, he moved up to Moto3 the following year. In 2020, he took second place in the Junior World Championship. During those years, Artigas also shone in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, finishing third in that competition in 2018. However, the Spanish rider had to wait until 2021 to get into Moto3 Grand Prix with the Leopard team. To his credit, one win, seven top ten finishes and a fifteenth place in the World Championship at the end of the year. Last season, signed by the CF Moto Racing Pruestel GP team, Xavier Artigas had to be satisfied with a sixteenth place in the overall classification. He will be dreaming of revenge in 2023.

Joel Kelso
Born on June 12th 2003 in Darwin, Australia

It's fair to say that Joel Kelso wasn't born in a region where speed riders are plentiful. Born in Darwin, in the north of Australia, the CFMoto rider started racing on his home ground before winning the national title in the Moto3 class. When others would have switched to Supersport and then Superbike, Joel Kelso decided to take his chances in Europe. First in Italy in Pre-Moto3, then in Spain with the European Talent Cup where he finished 17th in 2019. That same year, he also took part in a round of the Supesport 300 World Championship in Portugal. In 2020, he took three wins in the Junior Moto3 World Championship and finished fourth in that competition. The following season, he replaced Maximilien Kofler four times in the CIP team in the Moto3 world championship. Joel Kelso scored his first Grand Prix points at the Portimao circuit. The Australian rider, who started in the French team in 2022, had an up and down season which saw him finish his first World Championship in 21st position. He joined the CFMoto Racing Pruestel GP team last winter.
