American Jesse James Shedden took pole position and finished second at Round Four of the FMI (Federazione Motociclistica Italiana) Aprilia Sport Production CIV Junior Aprilia SP2 Championship series August 5-6 at Circuito Tazio Nuvolari, in Cervesina, Italy.

Shedden was slow off the line but took the lead early in Race One. Battling in a lead pack of four riders, Shedden turned the fastest lap of the race (1:30.463) on lap six of nine, but the Californian was drafted from the final corner to the finish line and finished second, 0.136 second behind winner Alessandro Aquilar.

Shedden battled for the lead again in Race Two, but contact with another rider pushed him wide, caused him to lose several positions, and relegated him to a fifth-place finish. The race was won by Ivan Spada with Shedden just 0.700 second behind him.

Still, Shedden was able to leave the event third in the Championship point standings, just 12 points behind leader Spada.

“That was some fun racing in those battles,” Shedden said via an email. “I’m not happy with being pushed out in the second race, but I am happy with my podium position in the first race.”

The FMI Aprilia Sport Production CIV Junior Aprilia SP2 Championship concludes with a fifth and final round September 16-17 at Autodromo Riccardo Paletti, near Varano, Italy.
