Jake Dixon has been preparing throughout the three week break between the French Grand Prix and the Italian Grand Prix to be ready for the upcoming triple header.
The MotoGP paddock has just experienced a three week break after the French Grand Prix ahead of the Italian, German and Dutch Grand Prix, which will take place over the space of the next three weeks. British rider, Jake Dixon, was on a good run of form before the break and will be looking to carry it over to Mugello this weekend.
Looking ahead to Mugello, the Sachsenring and Assen in the next three weeks Dixon had this to say ahead of the Italian Grand Prix:
“It's been a three-week break, but it's been intense at the same time. We have been preparing for these three races in a row.
"It's going to be an intense month, with no time to rest, at very different tracks. We will have to give our best to keep fighting for the front positions and get to the summer break in a good position and with our job done.”
So far this season Dixon has been a consistent top seven challenger in the Moto2 class. However, in the first five races of the season he has only stood on the podium once. Currently the 27-year-old finds himself sixth in the Championship standings on 47 points, 52 points behind the Championship leader.
Last season the GasGas Aspar rider was competitive throughout the upcoming stretch of races. In 2022 Dixon finished sixth in Mugello, he had a poor race in Germany and finished 11th and finally, he took a podium at Assen as he finished in third place.
The British rider will want to enter the summer break after the upcoming triple header on good form and high confidence. This will not just be for his Championship position, but also because the first race after the summer break is Dixon's home round of the British Grand Prix.
