Sam Lowes is looking to 'bounce back' at the Sachsenring

Gold and Goose

Sam Lowes crashed out in Mugello after being hit by Alonso Lopez on the opening lap, but the British rider wants to turn things around this weekend in Germany.

Sam Lowes has not had the easiest of starts to the 2023 season, he has won a race at the Spanish Grand Prix in dominant style, but in the other five Grands Prix he has only featured in the top ten twice. The only DNF that he has suffered this year has also not been his fault, but he did lose valuable points.

The British rider now sits in eighth in the Moto2 Championship standings, 75 points off of his team-mate, who currently leads the Championship.


With two more races in the next two weeks before the summer break the 32-year-old is looking to claw back some much needed points and make his way up the standings before the British Grand Prix after the summer break.

Ahead of the German Grand Prix Lowes had this to say: “After the disappointment and frustration of Mugello, it’s really good that we are racing again this weekend to try and bounce back quickly and show the performance we know we are capable of.

"Germany is quite a unique track, but I like it and last year I was able to finish on the podium and take pole position. I feel like I’m riding well, and the team is doing an incredible job with the bike, so I feel we are going to be competitive and strong this weekend.

"I need to recover some points after the last two rounds and the best way to do that is put myself into a position where I’m fighting for the victory.”
