Team City Lifting Secure Stunning Second
25 points ahead, sounds a lot doesn’t it? But with a possible 50 championship points left to play for, Jake had to be at his best to hold off the challenge of Dani Saez. It would of been easy to go out there and attack, but Jake showed maturity beyond his years with a measured performance that ensured he took second place in the Championship and bagged another two podiums in the process.
Climbing podiums has become a welcome habit this year for Jake and this weekend was no different. A third place in the first outing and a second in the deciding race proved to be enough for the Andover racer and he finished well in front of Saez with a comfortable 45 point gap separating the pair.
A great 2016
