Challenging weekend for Dixon
Challenging weekend for Dixon

Jake Dixon was hoping for a return to form as the Moto2 season returned to a track that has brought him success in recent seasons, unforuntately it wasn’t to be for Dixon.

Le Mans was the latest stop of the Moto2 season and the Dover born rider went into the race on Sunday having qualified in 11th place on Saturday afternoon, he went straight into Q2 but a crash limited him to just three laps, meaning he lined up on the fourth row of the grid for Sunday’s race.

The CFMOTO Inde Aspar Team unfortunately made a bad start which meant that his race was compromised from the start. He was also caught up in an incident with Senna Agius when he was fighting for thirteenth position, losing his front fender as a result of the incident, which severely impacted his chances of moving forward and scoring some all-important points as his tyres began to degrade.

Speaking after a challenging weekend, Dixon said: “I have had a bad start and then I have tried to comeback. We have made changes to the bike for the race that have not worked, we needed to try something because qualifying was not good.

“We will go back to what we know and will keep trying. In the middle of the race, I have had a contact with Senna, I have lost my front fender, and the front tyre has cooled.”

The season now moves onto the Grand Prix de Catalunya over the upcoming May bank holiday weekend.
