In the 2020 Rinaldi achieved his first WorldSBK success with the Panigale V4R of the Go Eleven team in Race-1 at Aragon, weekend that also saw him on the podium in the Superpole Race (P3) and in Race-2 (P2). In the current season the Italian rider was the absolute protagonist in the Misano round, where he got two victories (Race-1 and SPR) and a second place (Race-2). Thanks also to the P2 in the SPR conquered in Assen (Netherlands) Rinaldi is currently sixth in the Superbike World Championship standings with 150 points.
