Joshua Frederick Hook (born 9 January 1993 in Taree, New South Wales, Australia) is an Australian motorcycle racer, who competes with the Octo Pramac MotoE team in the 2019 FIM MotoE World Cup.[1] Arriving as the 2018 FIM Endurance World Champion and with knowledge of both MotoGP and Superbike equipment, Hook joined MotoE ahead of the inaugural season, partnering Alex de Angelis.[2]

Background

Hook got his first taste of a motorcycle at the age of eighteen months, although he would have to wait until his twelfth birthday to begin his racing career.[2] Racing in dirt track series from 2005 onward, Hook earned a spot in the 2009 Red Bull Rookies Cup, finishing nineteenth.[2] A year later and the Australian racer improved to twelfth, and duly moved back to Australia to focus on circuit racing.[2]

Diverse Duties

2011 saw Hook claim the Australian 125cc Championship, while also claiming third in the corresponding FX 600 Championship.[2] He subsequently became a factory Honda rider for the 2012 season in the Australian Supersport 600 series, claiming second at the end of the campaign.[2] 2013 saw a promotion to the Australian Superbike Championship, with the Australian racer claiming fifth for two seasons in a row.[2]

For 2015 Hook would set his sights on the Japanese realm of motorcycle racing, as well as get a handful of wildcard entries in the Moto2 World Championship.[2] A move to the full World Superbike Championship followed, although a pre-season injury ruled Hook out for most of the campaign.[2] Hook duly signed up to the FIM Endurance World Championship for 2017/18, and would go on to win the series alongside Alan Techer and Freddy Foray.[2]

MotoE History

Hook and Alex de Angelis would be announced as the riders for the Octo Parmac MotoE team in November 2018.[1] They made their mutual debuts at the Sachsenring, with Hook only able to fight for minor points after a mistake in qualifying.[3] He would, however, improve in Austria, finishing in the top ten after a race long battle with Sete Gibernau.[4]
