Scotland’s John McPhee took his maiden Moto3 win at Brno back in 2016 and aims at this weekend’s MotoGP round to continue his top form from Jerez.

The Petronas Sprinta man sits third in the championship chase after two podiums from three races and is keen to close down the leaders this weekend.

“We were consistently strong throughout the two weeks at Jerez and in both races we were fighting for the victory, so that was great,” said McPhee.

“With it being a track that I’ve never really been successful at in the past, it was great to leave there with such a good feeling. Since then I’ve been training with my fellow team-mates Xavi and KIP, doing some cycling and riding mini bikes.

“I’ve also been doing some mountain biking and hiking in the mountains in Andorra. It’s nice to have some time to do these things before these three back-to-back races.

“I have great memories of Brno and I’m really looking forward to going back there. My target will be to maintain what we’ve been doing already and to be fighting at the front from the start of the weekend until the end.”
