Positive Race At Landrake For Jake Shipton

Positive weekend on the track for Shipton at round 2 of the Premier MX Championships at Landrake.

Although not perfect track conditions, the day started strong with Jake qualifying 2nd and looking like the man to beat! Race 1 followed suit with another 2nd place victory for the motivated rider. With Shipton leading race 2, it looked as though he might take the win, however a costly error left him quite literally stuck in a rut and finishing 14th.

The weather started to turn in race 3 but Jake remained optimistic and rode well finishing 2nd in this, the final moto of the day. An improvement on the previous week meant that he eventually finished in 6th place overall.

"Things haven't started as I'd hoped but I am working towards a goal that I've set myself. Racing can be very fickle and I understand that things won't go smoothly for me all the time but that is what motivates me. Rob's been great and is teaching me to grab the bull by the horns and ride it out, I know I am capable of more and I am ready to prove that."

"Jake started the day riding quite well, he mounted a challenge in the first race which brought him very close to a win and maybe one more lap could have brought a different result. Race 2 was looking positive with Jake taking the lead out of the gate, unfortunately a costly error meant this wasn't to be. A good ride in race 3 summed up the day of not being quite as his best but we'll move on and get ready for next week!"
