British Talent Team rider John McPhee has looked strong all season, but a lowside in Jerez scuppered his point scoring streak.

The MotoGP championship heads to Le Mans this weekend for its 17th year and McPhee is looking to make amends. The weather is unpredictable in France, and a lot of the races held there in the past have been affected by the rain. But McPhee is determined to race a good race, be it in the wet or the dry.

I’m looking forward to getting back on track in France, and getting back some of our momentum from the first few races after a more difficult GP in Spain.

“This year Le Mans has a new track surface, which will be a question mark for everyone, and the weather is always tough to predict in France – so adaptation could be key.

“We’ll try to stay focused, manage the weekend as best we can and concentrate on getting a good haul of points again – whether it’s wet or dry.”

The Brit currently sits fourth in the Championship, but is looking to add to his 49 points this weekend. Le Mans is known for it’s hard braking, with five left-handers and nine right.

McPhee has finished in the top 10 before at the Bugatti circuit, but is looking to take his first win of the season at the historic circuit.
