Jake Dixon confirms he will ‘try out’ Portuguese Moto2 return at Portimao

Gold & Goose

Jake Dixon says he has been given the all-clear to attend Round 2 of the 2024 Moto2 World Championship, the Portuguese Moto2 at Portimao, but will need to pass a medical at the circuit prior to returning to action.

The CFMoto Team Aspar rider was forced to sit out the opening round of the season in Qatar after a huge high-side during FP3 left him nursing internal trauma and concerns around his lungs that prevented him from travelling back to the UK until several days after the event.

Despite this, having escaped with no broken bones, Dixon has been given the local clearance to fly out to Portugal for Round 2 and - subject to a medical at the track - will attempt to get his season underway at the Autodromo Internacional Algarve circuit.


“I am happy to be back home after the crash in the first Grand Prix. We are following the medical protocols and, step by step, I feel that I am feeling better. 

“I have visited several doctors who have told me to go to Portimao, try it out and see how I feel on the bike, and from there we will reassess. 

“My next objective is to pass the medical check-up before the Portuguese Grand Prix so I can get on the bike for the first test.”

Considered one of the favourites for the 2024 Moto2, though his withdrawal in Qatar leaves him with no points on the board for now, he is joined by the likes of Tony Arbolino and Fermin Aldeguer in failing to get off the mark in Round 1.
