▶ Biography

After signing his best year as a Moto2 rider in 2023, Jake Dixon enters his sixth season in the category in 2024 as one of the most experienced riders. The British will be looking to continue the progress he has shown and repeat the good results of last season. 

Jake's passion for motorcycling runs in the family: his father Darren was a professional rider and passed on his passion for the sport to his son at a very young age. In fact, at the age of 13, he made his professional debut in the Aprilia Superteens, where he finished third.

Jake started climbing up the British motorcycle ladder opted for the Superbike route to forge his career as a rider and in 2017 he competed for the first time in the BSB, a year in which he achieved a creditable sixth position and two victories. The following year he managed to finish runner-up in the most important Superbike national championship with 16 podiums, a result that earned him the chance to make the jump to the Moto2 World Championship with the Aspar Team.

So, 2019 was the British first year in the World Championship - although he did ride one race in 2017 as a substitute - and it was not an easy season, as he did not arrive in Moto2 by the usual route and did not know many of the circuits. However, since he landed in the category, he has not stopped progressing. In 2019, he finished with only seven points. In 2020, he changed colours, his evolution was remarkable and he scored 44 points. The following season was a special year for Jake, as he missed two Moto2 races when he had the opportunity to make his MotoGP debut at the British Grand Prix and share a box with Valentino Rossi. 

The 2022 campaign was Jake's breakout year. The British returned to the Aspar Team, scored six podiums and finished sixth in the overall standings, a clear step forward that he would certify just one year later. The 2023 season has been Dixon's best yet, as he has opened his Moto2 win record with two victories at Assen and Catalunya and ended the year with a total of five podiums, which have seen him finish fourth in the World Championship.

Dixon starts 2024 with his batteries recharged and the challenge of continuing the progression shown in recent years to become a contender for wins and podiums on a regular basis.
