2021/09/23 - FIM Supersport World Championship: Spanish Round / Preview

Regain sense of success in Jerez

After the bitter disappointment of Misano, Dominique Aegerter wants to concentrate fully on winning the Supersport World Championship now.

Dominique Aegerter had to skip last weekend's Supersport meeting in Barcelona due to his commitments in MotoE™ World Cup. At the season’s finale of the electric bike series in Misano, the 30-year-old experienced Swiss rider fought for the title right up to the last lap. Although he finished as the presumed winner, a decision by the race control after an incident with Spaniard Jordi Torres ultimately cost him the overall victory.

The professional motorcycle racer from the canton of Bern had no choice but to swallow this bitter pill and settle for the runner-up title, having already innocently missed out on this coveted title last year. His chances are infinitely better in the Supersport World Championship with production-based 600cc race bikes, as Aegerter comes to the second of three consecutive meetings in this series this month at the southern Spanish circuit of Jerez de la Frontera with a 45-point gap to his first contender.

Do not miss any race action this weekend, tune it at Austrian's broadcaster ServusTV for their live stream.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (Ten Kate Racing Yamaha, Yamaha YZF R6):

"It is still not easy for me to swallow the disappointment of last Sunday. On this black race day there was only one positive aspect for me and that was to support my Ten Kate team. While I was in Misano, of course, I followed every session in Barcelona closely. The team did a good job. Simon Jerspersen and Galang Patrama did their job well. I was pleased that Simon handled my bike well, and he also took care of it. I missed the team a lot when I saw my bike riding at the Barcelona track. A track day last Tuesday with some sponsors and fans helped me a bit to put Misano out of my mind a bit."

"But now I cannot wait to return to the Ten Kate family and also to the Circuito de Jerez, which I know inside out from many years as a Grand Prix rider. Unlike most of this year’s other circuits, we did not have a test there with the Supersport bike. But that should not be a big disadvantage because I have enough track knowledge of Jerez. I really like Jerez. The weather should also be good in Spain, so we can expect stable conditions. There are also nice memories of Jerez with a podium in Moto2, as well as a race win in MotoE. The track is overall very fast and flowing and there are some good overtaking spots. Most of all, though, I am looking forward to being back on a real race bike this weekend, seeking for success again."
