Blog | Simon Jespersen out of luck in Germany but working well

Hey fellas! Hope your summer break have been very good and relaxing!

If we look back at Sachsenring, I've had a quite an unlucky Race 1 and not the most satisfying race 2... if you saw race 1, I was knocked out by other riders in the first corner, just after the race started. I'm a bit sad about that accident, because I felt very strong and had a very good start. No matter what, I can't do anything else, than look forward for round 5 in Austria. I've never been in Austria, and I'm very excited for next round!

The 29th of July, I rode the 5th round of the FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship. It was a very positive weekend, and learned a lot more about my bike regarding the setup and also about optimizing qualifying. I have also improved my riding style, and now I'm getting more response from the bike, and I feel more confident to push to the limit.

These are my two grid girls; they support me with everything throughout the weekend. My parents are all I have in the FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship, to help me. As a family team, I'm very proud of what we are capable to accomplish.

The 23rd of july was my birthday and I turned 17! That day I was in Spain without my family, so I celebrated my birthday on dirt, with Riderpark in Aragon.

When I was riding at Riderpark, we spent the time on minimoto, flattrack, 600cc, 650cc, and we also did some endurance! From last time I was there, I have now improved my riding skills and went a lot faster this time! And thanks to Kev Coghlan, for being a very good coach and giving great tips, to go faster every time!

When I got home from Spain, the first thing I did, was taking my new scooter out and make it ready. Now I just have to wait until I get a license... (yes.. I took a small ride on it when it was finished - haha)

I want to wish Matteo Patacca and Jason Dupasquier, a very speedy recovery and hope to see them soon, in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup season again!

Cheers!
