Jessopp stays with Ridersmotorcycles BMW

Martin Jessopp will remain with Ridersmotorcycles BMW for the 2016 MCE British Superbike championship for a fourth straight campaign.
Martin Jessopp is to stay with Ridersmotorcycles BMW for the 2016 MCE British Superbike championship which will mark a fourth consecutive campaign in the series with the team.

The Yeovil-based rider has recently celebrated a second place podium at the Macau Grand Prix having also claimed pole position for the prestigious South China race after completing another successful season in BSB. Jessopp notched up a best result of eighth place in race two at Thruxton and finished 23rd overall in the riders' championship.

Jessopp is hoping for more of the same positive progress in 2016 and is delighted to stay with Ridersmotorcycles BMW having joined the team in BSB in 2013.

“We have had a few seasons with the BMW now and I think that we can take another step forward in 2016,” Jessopp said. “This year we had our best results with the S1000RR with top ten finishes and so that is what we have to target next year, because we know that we are capable of more of that with the package we have as a team.

“We recently had the podium finish at Macau, so we have a break now before testing to make a plan ready to start next year in the best way possible.”

Jessopp becomes the 25th rider announced on the grid for the 2016 BSB championship.

Abefan: I thought that Riders of Bridgewater was the family business.
Bridgewater is just the location of one of their shops. They also have stores in Bristol and Cardiff. The company is called Riders Motorcycles, Bridgewater was where the original shop opened in the late 80s.
