Yonny Hernandez started in 2003 in Colombia, racing in motocross. He raced for five or six years in the Latin-American Motocross Championship and then moved to supermotard where he claimed the title of National Champion. For the 2008 season he went to Spain looking for a future and did very well in supermotard. He had four races in the Spanish Championship in which he finished third in his first year.
From there, Hernández moved on to the Supersport category of the CEV Buckler (Spanish National Championship) where he rode a Suzuki GSXR600. In the first race he was on the podium. Hernandez finished the 2009 season with four podiums in total and in fourth place overall.
Yonny raced in the Moto2 category in 2010 for Blusens STX. He managed a couple of 10th place best-finishes among a smattering of DNFs, earning himself 21st overall at season's end. Hernandez will continue on in Moto2 for Blusens STX in 2011

Yonny Hernandez 2011 Moto2 Results
Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a 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 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.
