Xavi Vierge was born in Barcelona, Spain, on 30 April 1997.

Vierge finished as runner-up in the 2015 FIM CEV Moto2 European Championship and made his debut in the Moto2 World Championship that same year, competing with the Tech 3 Team from round ten onwards. He remained with that squad as a permanent rider for the following two years, ending the 2016 season as Rookie of the Year and achieving his first podium in 2017 (Japan) during a strong season in which he regularly battled at the front.

Two more podium finishes (Argentina and Australia) resulted from his collaboration with the Dynavolt Intact GP team in 2018, while over the last three years, first as teammate to Alex Marquez in the EG 0,0 Marc VDS garage, and most recently with Petronas Sprinta Racing, he has been a regular Moto2 top-ten finisher (ten times in 2021) and scored another podium (3rd) this year at Catalunya, ending the season in 11th position overall.

In 2022 Vierge joined the WorldSBK Championship as factory Honda rider in the Team HRC.

After securing a seventh-place finish in his first race at Aragón, Vierge proved to be a regular top ten finisher in the subsequent races. His best result of the season was a close fourth-place finish in the Superpole race at Misano, the Spaniard rounding out the year in tenth place overall. After a strong rookie season, Xavi is sharing again the WorldSBK factory Team HRC garage with fellow countryman Iker Lecuona, both looking forward to show their potential to fight at the front.

Vierge also represented Honda at the iconic Suzuka 8 Hours in August alongside Takumi Takahashi who is competing in the MFJ*3 All Japan Road Race Championship (JRR) ST1000 class this season and was one of the winning riders at last year’s event such as Tetsuta Nagashima. Vierge won his debut race at the event.
