A Courageous Ride For Jake Shipton At Desertmartin

Jake getting some air at round 5 of the British Championships

This weekend saw the return of the MAXXIS British Championships to the sandy hills of Desertmartin in Northern Ireland. Jake had a great start with his best ever qualifying result of 3rd at a British Championship. Another confident start in race 1 meant he was riding the YZ450F fast and in the top 3 for the first couple of turns, unfortunately he was taken down on the 3rd by another rider and although he tried to catch up with the rest of the field, was forced to retire.

Jake recovered from race 1 to take a creditable 5th place in race 2. He was hounding Brad Anderson (Verde KTM) for 2nd place for a good half of the race, but the rigours of the day took effect and he finished 5th. It was a brave and courageous ride following his crash and he remains 9th in the standings.

Jake's next race is at Foxhills for round 5 of the Pirelli Masters on the 2nd July.

Get your hands on the YZ450F + a FREE pair of MX goggles, 4 litres of Yamalube AND an afternoon's training with Jake himself for the reduced price of just £6,649. Call Matt or Guy on the details below for more information.

"Jake's best ever qualifying at a British Championship, 3rd place shows he has the speed. An unfortunate crash on turn 3 in race 1 spoilt Jake's chances to showcase that speed. A gutsy ride in race 2 helped to salvage some points and remain 9th in the standings."

"Highs and lows this weekend at round 5 of the British Championships, speed and everything is there, i just need to be more consistent and maybe a little smarter finding and creating new lines in the sandier circuits to reach the next level."
