The meteoric rise. The inexplicable fall. And then, finally, The Return. Alvaro Bautista’s path to the summit of the Superbike World Championship has made for a compelling tale, told over four scintillating seasons of racing and culminating in the #1 numberplate which he will bear this upcoming 2023 season. The final 12 months of that road mark the starting point for ‘Alvaro Bautista: The Return’, a 40-plus-minute, in-depth look at a landmark year for the 38-year-old and Ducati alike.
Exclusive interviews with all three championship contenders, as well as with several key members of the Ducati family, provide context and answer some of the key questions from the 2022 season. Who first brought up the idea of a reunion? When did Bautista feel the most pressure in 2022? And the question that has hung over their heads since 2019 – what happened?
These quotes and reactions are complemented by behind-the-scenes footage of the Spanish rider and his Ducati team, at the track and beyond, with much of it unreleased until now. See the different sides of the reigning World Champion: the preparation, the fears, the emotions.
