Riders Motorcycles BMW’s Martin Jessopp has become the latest rider to confirm his place on the 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship grid as he returns for a third season with BMW power.

 Jessopp has a long history in the Championship, scoring top ten finishes in previous seasons with a best result of fourth in 2011 and is now aiming to build on his debut campaign with the BMW in 2014.

Riders Motorcycles team backed by Riders Motorcycles, own three major dealerships at Bridgwater, Bristol and Cardiff with the latter BMW specialists.

Jessopp said: "I can't wait to get started – this is our third year with the BMW and everyone knows it's a proven package in the championship. Last year we were building up at the start of the season and then I got injured at the TT, which meant I missed some rounds and was recovering.

"I think that once we get testing underway we can build on the development we have done over the past two seasons to come back stronger. We have some improvements lined up to keep us moving forward so we can push further up the field. We have done it before and there is no reason why we can't do it again. It won't be easy but we will be pushing hard to make it happen."
