Jayson takes positives from challenging Czech WorldSBK weekend, looks ahead to Navarra
Outdo TPR Team Pedercini were back in action in the latest round of the FIM Superbike World Championship at the Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic this past weekend with riders Loris Cresson, Jayson Uribe and Johan Gimbert once again flying the team’s flag.
Most Autodrom, a new venue for the majority of riders presented a new challenge for the trio, with rainfall on Friday limiting the laps made by all three. Nevertheless, step by step, Jayson Uribe was able to comfortably qualify, making significant improvements throughout the weekend.
There was disappointment in Race 1 with Jayson crashing along with teammate Loris Cresson, who was running strongly inside the points scoring positions. Sunday brought better results with both riders able to finish inside the top twenty in the ‘sprint’ race, whilst in Race 2, Jayson finished twenty-first.
“Unfortunately I crashed in the first race and so did Loris. I was fine and so was the bike, but we made a step and my pace considering the lack of time on this kind of bike was not too bad. I really wanted to focus on eliminating mistakes in the race but sadly I went down. Race two went better, and I cannot really complain. It was a real eye opener and I learned so much. I cannot thank Outdo TPR Team Pedercini enough for the opportunity to join them and I am already looking forward to getting back out on track in Spain in a fortnight.”
