After a successful 2022 North America Talent Cup (NATC) effort, Shedden will compete in Italy on the Aprilia RS250 SP2 for the spec CIV Aprilia series and aim to secure international road racing credentials.

HELENDALE, CA – Jesse James Shedden has signed with the established Italian Bierreti Racing Team to compete in the CIV Aprilia Sport Production Championship Series aboard the Aprilia RS250 SP2. Jesse James notched multiple wins aboard the Aprilia during the NATC, ultimately coming one-point shy of the championship. He looks to carry his winning record overseas to the home of Aprilia, against some of Italy’s top young racers. Signing with the Bierreti Racing team sends a strong message to competitors that Jesse James is focused on winning.

Bierreti Racing has successfully competed in CIV, CEV, and FIM series, with multiple champions racing under the Bierreti Team name. Most recently, the 2021 and 2022 Aprilia Sport Production series champions raced for Bierreti. A premier team in the paddock, Bierreti has years of experience to offer the fourteen-year old American.

When asked about the opportunity to race for a top team in Italy, Jesse James replied, “I’m really excited about the opportunity to race for Bieretti Racing in the CIV Junior Series in Italy.  I love travel, I love adventure, and I love a challenge so this should be good.”

Giulia Stibioli, Bierreti’s Team Owner commented: “We are very enthusiastic having an international rider such as Jesse on board, we are sure it is a big opportunity for mutual growth. The Aprilia Sport Production has been for many riders a great way for racing in CIV Moto3 and then to start a high-level international career. We hope it is the beginning of a great collaboration!”

Jesse James Shedden will continue with sponsors who have supported him during national racing in the U.S., including: Atlas Speed Factory, Fresh n Lean, KYT Helmets, Mithos USA, Dunlop Tires, ASV Inventions, TechSpec Tank Grips, Suspension Matters, Yoshimura R&D, Maxima Racing Oils, Bickle Racing, Produkte Designs, RJR Motorsports, Alpinestars, VNM Sport, Galfer USA, and APX AXN Motorsports Solutions.
