Like Father, Like Son

Spanish motorcycling legend Angel Nieto Sr. showing his son Angel Nieto Jr. the basics of riding.


The 13-time World Champion – whose superstition always referred to his titles as 12+1 – was a MotoGP Legend and a key figure in establishing Spain as a world-beating force in Grand Prix motorcycle racing.
His total of 90 Grand Prix victories ranks him third most successful Grand Prix racer of all time following 122 wins by Giacomo Agostini and 115 wins for Valentino Rossi.

After his active career Nieto operated a Grand Prix motorcycle racing team with two riders – his son, Ángel Nieto Jr. and Emilio Alzamora, who won the 125 cc world title in 1999.
