The 2022 Triumph Triple Trophy was decided at the final Moto2™ round of the season the Circuito Ricardo Tormo in Valencia.
Going into race day Jeremy Alcoba, Liqui Moly IntactGP team, and Moony VR46 Racing Team rider Celestino Vietti were the two leading contenders for the 2022 Triumph Triple Trophy with Alcoba leading by 4 points, leaving the TTT table very much open for a thrilling final race.
With Jeremy Alcoba finishing the final Moto2TM race of the season in 8th position, whilst Vietti crashing out, the Spanish rider became the 2022 Triumph Triple Trophy champion in front of a home crowd.
The Triumph Triple Trophy recognises the many successes and achievements of a GP weekend beyond the race victory, with the scoring designed to reflect the incredible close nature of the competition in Moto2™:
7 points – Best race progression from start to finish: 7 points for the rider or riders making up the most positions from race start to chequered flag
6 points – Pole position: 6 points for the rider who qualifies on pole
5 points – Fastest race lap: 5 points for the fastest rider/riders in case of an equal fastest lap
Jeremy won the championship in the main thanks to his incredible record of progressions across 6 races, Portugal, Catalunya, Germany, Assen, Misano and Sepang demonstrating his talent and confirming once again the outstanding performance capability of the 765 Triumph Triple Engine.
The TTT prize, a stunning one-off Triumph Street Triple RS 765, specifically built in Hinckley, was presented to Jeremy Alcoba by Triumph’s Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent, a perfect early birthday gift just nine days before Jeremy’s 22nd birthday.
