MotoGP Argentina: Dixon ‘still adapting’ to KTM Moto2

| | MotoGP

Britain’s Jake Dixon is still adapting to the Nieto KTM Moto2 as he goes into this weekend’s Argentine MotoGP round but believes he will be competitive when everything dovetails together.

The 2018 British Superbike runner-up hasn’t had the easiest of time moving to the prototype middleweight class but is in no doubt that when he and his team get the setup nailed, he will be able to mix it with the best.
“We travel to Argentina with the sole aim of continuing to improve and with our heads high after the first race,” said Dixon.

“I don’t think it will be a hard circuit to learn, I have watched videos and done a lot of laps on the games console.

I know that when we find the right set-up for the bike I will be fast, but right now I can’t show my full potential.

“We are still adapting to the bike and how it behaves but I have a great team behind me and together we will get there.”

The opening free practice sessions on Friday will be crucial for Dixon and team-mate Xavier Cardelus to learn the layout as quickly as possible.
