Dixon misses out on Podium at Assen

Jake Dixon made a welcome return to form at the Moto2 Dutch Grand Prix last weekend, he finished just outside the podium spots in fourth place at a track he has enjoyed recent success.

Having made it through to Q2, Jake posted the ninth quickest qualifying time, which was seven tenths off the pole sitter. It meant that he had a good chance in Sunday’s race to get away with the front runners from lights out.

The rider from Dover climbed from ninth to fourth place in a race in which he has had a great pace. Dixon has completed a very positive weekend in which he has gone from lowest to highest and finishes for the third consecutive grand prix in points, a streak that he will fight to continue extending in Germany.

Speaking after the weekend, Dixon said: “Yesterday I was pretty happy in terms of race pace; I knew that we had done a nice job. Before the race, I have said to the team that I would be happy if we finished in the top five and, in the end, we have ended fourth.

“We still have a lot of work to do and I have found what we need to improve. Overall, it has been a good step forward from what we have been doing. This weekend has been great as a team, everyone has worked really well. I am really happy with the result.”
