MOTOGP: Joan Mir To Maintain His #36 For Title Defence

2020 MotoGP World Champion, Joan Mir, will head into the 2021 season with his usual #36.

The Suzuki rider opted to stay loyal to his current #36 instead of using the #1 after winning the title last season.

“The number will be the same as always, the loyal one, #36.

“I think it would have been awesome to use the #1, a unique experience and a dream.

“But I believe that 36 is the number with which I’ve worked hard, and it has taken me to where I am now, winning two world championships [MotoGP and Moto3],” he explained.

The #1 was last seen in 2012 with Casey Stoner at Repsol Honda, while Marc Marquez and Valentino also kept the usual numbers with 93 and 46, respectively.
