Alex Debon made his professional racing debut in 1994. He began with Spanish Grand Prix wildcard rides in 1998 and 1999, seasons which also saw him finish 6th and 7th respectively in the 250cc class of the European Championship. Debon moved from the Valencia Circuit team after two seasons, to develop the new Honda NSR250 with Hardwick Racing, but sponsorship problems saw a last minute switch to Campetella and a privateer Aprilia. In 2004 he joined the Wurth Honda BQR team and took 12th overall. He continued with the Spanish team in 2005, aiming to shine amongst the privateers but could only manage 12th again.
In 2006 Debon became Aprilia’s test and reserve rider and only competed in five GP races scoring himself 13th in the overall standings. In 2008, he scored a regular race ride and managed to win his first GP and followed it up with 4 additional podiums, placing him 4th overall for the season. 2009 proved a little more difficult, landing him in 10th by the end of the season.
In 2010 Debon will step up to the new 600cc Moto2 class and rode for Team Aeroport de Castello.

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class, Moto2 will replace the 250cc category from 2010. This new category is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this new category of Grand Prix racing will be the single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships are to provide the tyres.
Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell
Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.
No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.
Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.
