I’ve been riding bikes as long as I can remember…
At 4 I started riding a Honda 50 dirt bike, by 7 I was racing Supermoto on a Kawasaki 65 and by age 9 I was racing GP on a 2004 Honda RS125R. My entire family rides motorcycles, it’s a passion which runs deep in our veins.
I moved to the UK with my Mom at 13 so that I could begin my international racing career in the British Superbike Championship while my Dad stayed in California to keep our family electrical business going.
I raced for 2 years in the BSB and then moved to a Honda CBR600RR production machine to learn the ropes and progress on a larger machine. Race Experience Junior and Motul invited me to be the first American to contest the French Superbike Championship in the stock 600 class.
With the guidance of Sebastien Gimbert and my team, I achieved my first international win and track record at the Circuit de Ledenon. My next step was the FIM CEV Moto2 European Championship with my new team, AGR, in Spain.
In 2016 and 2017 I had strong seasons in the CEV European Championship, finishing both years in 11th. This year, as with 2018, I am excited to be back in the United States and racing in the West Coast rounds in the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship as well as several AFM rounds.
For now, I am open to options in both production and prototype racing. If you would like to know more; please send an email to Jay@jaysonuribe.com!
When I’m not racing, I’m an International Correspondent and Journalist for the Bonnier Motorcycle Corporation. I cover the European and American racing scene as well as discuss what it’s like to balance school, a full-time electrical career, and a racing program. I work for my family’s electrical business, Rock and Sons, Inc., as a 2nd-year apprentice Electrician as I believe it’s important to have a well-rounded background so that I am prepared for life during and after racing. I graduated from high school at the age of 16, and by my 17th birthday, I became a proud business owner of my own media company, Full Throttle Media.
I know how important it is to gain experience on the American tracks seeing as I have been racing overseas for the past five years. I am confident that with hard work, the dedication of my supporters, sponsors, and family that I will make it to the top racing level; step by step making progress every day.
