JESSE JAMES SHEDDEN WINS BOTH RACES AT ROUND 1 OF THE CIV APRILIA SPORT PRODUCTION CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
The American had a perfect first round, winning both races in the wet, including a wild race one after a highside and sustaining damage to his bike
ROME, Italy; May 22, 2023 – Jesse James Shedden has firmly established himself in the Italian paddock as a young talent to watch. Coming into round one with only one day of testing at the Vallelunga circuit, Jesse James put his head down and got straight to work.
Conditions were declared wet for both races. During race one, with an 18-second lead, Jesse James highsided with less than half race distance left. After losing a few positions while he collected himself and figured out damage to the bike, he was able to regain first position with two laps remaining and crossed the finish line with his first CIV win.
Race two was less dramatic, but equally impressive as Jesse took his second win. For both race one and race two, Jesse managed the fastest lap times of the race.
Jesse James heads to the Magione circuit for round two with a head start in the championship points.
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.
