Jake Dixon wants to 'fight for front positions' against Acosta and Arbolino at Assen

Jake Dixon has stood on the podium in the first two races of the triple header before the summer break, with just one race left of the triple header Dixon is aiming for his first Moto2 win at Assen.

The GasGas Moto2 rider has been on strong form of late and has made his way up to fourth in the Championship standings.

Dixon finished third in both Mugello and the Sachsenring to claim back-to-back podium. However, they were both third places, which is the best result that Dixon has ever had in Moto2, these results have left the British rider 'frustrated' as he has never finished any higher than third.


The recent podiums and improvements in his race craft has allowed Dixon to climb up the order in Moto2 from seventh in the Championship to fourth. The 27-year-old is only three points behind Alonso Lopez, who is third in the Moto2 Championship. However, Dixon is 50 points behind the Championship leader, Tony Arbolino.

“In the last few races we've made a step forward and have been very consistent. Said Dixon when looking ahead to this weekend at Assen.

"We arrive to Assen with two podium finishes in a row and having improved at the start of the last race. I will keep aiming to fight for the front positions and to be able to do it with Acosta and Arbolino.”

Assen is the last race before the five week summer break, it is also a circuit that Dixon knows well from his time in the British Superbike Championship. After the summer break Dixon will have his home Grand Prix to compete in, where a first Grand Prix win will be the aim.
