Axel Pons was born in 1991 in Barcelona. He is the son of Alfonso Sito Pons, two-time world champion of the 250cc category.
He debuted at the Grand Prix 125cc but in 2008, he had to set his career aside after a motorcycle accident.
In 2009, he went back on track and finished 26th of the 250cc rankings.
In 2010, he passed to the category moto2 and in 2014 he left his father's team to join Jonad Folger at AGR. It turned out to be a good choice because then he finished 6 times in the ranks, including 3 times in the top 10.
Thereby, he was given the opportunity to go on with AGR for one more year in 2015, renewed in 2016.
Axel Pons also combines his professional pilot career with modelling. He appeared in several advertising campaigns like Camper or Redskins as well as in various editorials for magazines like Lui or Men's Health.
