MXGP Great Britain

The opening round of the 2020 FIM World Motocross Championship returned to the UK’s natural theatre of Matterley Basin, just ten minutes away from the city of Winchester.

Jerre was working hard to get through the field and halfway the race he was in 19th position. However, each pass was getting more difficult but he could end the race on a 14th place.

The second race he rounded the first lap in 13th place, he tried to keep in touch with the top ten on the tricky track. Unfortunately he could not found his rythem and hampered by the low sun, he ended the race in 17th position. The team now head straight to the Netherlands in order to prepare for the second round of the MXGP championship, which will be held at the sandy Valkenswaard track on March 7-8. So a
