Andrea Dovizioso honoured with MotoGP Hall of Fame induction

Gold & Goose

Three-time MotoGP runner-up Andrea Dovizioso will enter into the MotoGP Hall of Fame in honour of his long and successful World Championship winning career.

The Italian, who formally retired from MotoGP towards the end of the 2022 season, became one of grand prix racing’s longest-serving riders in an international career spanning 21 years, 346 grand prix starts and 24 GP wins (12 of which came in MotoGP)

Winning the 125GP World Championship in 2004, Dovizioso was twice a runner-up in 250GP too before progressing to MotoGP in 2008. After stints at Honda and Yamaha, Dovizioso enjoyed his greatest successes upon moving to Ducati, proving Marc Marquez’s closest rival for three consecutive seasons in 2017, 2018 and 2019.


Credited as the pivotal factor that led Ducati to the dominance it is now enjoying, Dovizioso’s achievements have now been recognised officially ahead of this weekend’s Italian MotoGP at Mugello.

Presented with a medal by Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dovizioso joins an illustrious list of fellow MotoGP Hall of Fame members, including Valentino Rossi, Giacomo Agostini and Mike Hailwood.
