Gibernau ties the knot

1 of 1

Retired Spanish MotoGP racer Sete Gibernau continued to build his life away from racing recently when he married supermodel girlfriend Esther Canadas.

The pair wed at a ceremony in Girona, just outside of Barcelona, following a long-term romance.

Gibernau announced his retirement at the end of last season when he was axed from Ducati’s factory squad after an injury-hit 2006 campaign.

He won nine premier class races and at his peak was twice runner-up to arch rival Valentino Rossi in the 2003 and 2004 world championship while riding for the Telefonica MoviStar Honda squad.
