Chris Vermeulen's Biography

Regarded as one of the world’s fastest motorcycle racers, fan of anything with an ignition and affectionately adored by all who meet him, Chris Vermeulen is one of
Australia’s most loved and well known motorcycle racers.


2010 saw Chris return to World Superbikes from MotoGP, having previously dominated the titles with a world championship in 2003.
Currently competing in the World Superbike Championship for the works Kawasaki team, he originally raced in this class in 2004 and 2005 for the Ten Kate Honda team, finishing as series runner-up in 2005. He also won the World Supersport Championship for Ten Kate in 2003.
From 2006 season season he joined the elite MotoGP series, for the Rizla Suzuki MotoGP Team. On 28 August 2009 Suzuki confirmed Vermeulen will leave the team at the end of the 2009 season.[1] He is regarded as a wet-weather expert and is affectionately nicknamed 'Vermin' on account of his last name.
After failing to secure a contract to remain in MotoGP for the 2010 Championship, Vermeulen sought a return to the Superbike World Championship.
On 6 October 2009 it was confirmed that he had signed a contract with the Kawasaki Superbike Team for the 2010 Superbike World Championship season, replacing Makoto Tamada. Vermeulen injured his knee in a crash at the season-opening round at Phillip Island, forcing him to miss the next two races. He continued to struggle throughout the season, and reinjured the knee in a first-lap pile-up at Brno. Following medical advice, he then chose to sit out the remainder of the season in order to regain full fitness.
A hero of the sport, Chris Vermeulen has complemented his riding career by maintaining and developing a quality group of business partners and relationships. He is heavily involved in community initiatives, a great role model and is a respected advocate for any company he represents.
