Career[edit]

125cc World Championship[edit]

Born in Alcoy, Province of Alicante Valencia, Spain, Terol began his professional racing career in 2005. He took his first international victory in the rain-shortened 2008 Indianapolis motorcycle Grand Prix as he was leading the race at the time of the final completed lap.[1] He finished third in the 2009 championship, while he finished runner-up to Marc Márquez in the 2010 championship. In 2011, Terol won eight races during the season, and won the final world championship for the class, before it was replaced by Moto3 for 2012.

Moto2 World Championship[edit]

Terol moved up to the intermediate class, Moto2, for the 2012 season. Terol endured a testing season, which finished with a third-place finish on home soil in Valencia. In 2013, Terol won three races with the Aspar Racing Team, en route to a seventh-place finish in the final championship standings. Terol struggled in the 2014 campaign, taking a solitary points-scoring finish – a 14th-place finish in Argentina – as he finished in 28th place in the final championship standings.
