“You might never ride again” – Dixon’s career-saving surgery

Being told “you might never be able to ride again” is something a motorcycle rider never wants to hear, especially at the age of 25 when your Grand Prix career is just starting to build some momentum. But that’s exactly what Jake Dixon (Petronas Sprinta Racing) has had to endure over the winter months following a crash in FP2 of the European Grand Prix. Now, four months on, he’s only just able to ride a bike again, putting the start of his season in serious jeopardy. “It was actually touch-and-go whether I’d ever be able to ride again. On Friday, I’m going to ride for the first time on a motorbike to see what my range of movement is. Riders will take to the Qatar track for their only Official Test days prior to the season beginning.
