OUTDO TPR Team Pedercini Racing snatches up MotoAmerica rider, Jayson Uribe for the remainder of the 2021 WorldSBK season.
MotoAmerica Superbike racer Jayson Uribe is making the move to the WorldSBK paddock. The California-born racer has been recruited by the OUTDO TPR Team Pedercini Racing outfit to replace the recently vacated seat, alongside new Belgian teammate Loris Cresson.
The 22-year-old Uribe is in 13th place in the MotoAmerica Superbike standings for the current season. Thus far, he has earned a total of 33 points from ten races with a best finish of eighth place.
“I’m super excited to be given the opportunity to ride with OUTDO TPR Team Pedercini at Most. I think it will be a lot of fun to be able to work with such a great and well-established team. I am also excited to reconnect with a few people who are already in the team that I know (the Gimbert family) from 2015, when I raced in the French Superbike series in Superstock. It will be good to get back on a Kawasaki. I don’t have so much experience on the green machine and it is a new track so for sure there will be a big learning curve, especially with the Pirelli tyres which I also don’t know but I am ready for the challenge. Everybody so far has been very supportive and to be finally in the World Superbike paddock, which is somewhere that I have wanted to be for a long time is great. I am doing everything I can to be ready, both physically and mentally and I can’t thank Lucio and OUTDO TPR Team Pedercini for the opportunity.” – Jayson Uribe.
