The JM Racing Honda team had signed Henry Jacobi and Michele Cervellin for the 2021 season. Unfortunately the preparation of Cervellin was ruined by an old wrist injury and due to this he missed the first half of the world championship. When he was fully recovered he worked hard together with the team to be ready for the second half of the season.
Just when he found the right direction again he made a small crash and dislocated his shoulder during a training session. Unfortunately there was too much damage so he needed surgery which meant the end of his season.
Henry Jacobi showed many good things during the 2021 season. He started with some bad luck at the opening round in Russia and failed to score points but after this round things started to go in the right direction for the German. In the third round of the championship in Maggiora, Italy he scored his best result of the season with a fifth position. Another top ten moto finish came in the opening moto of the MXGP in the Czech Republic. In two of the four motos who were held in Turkey he finished inside of the top ten as well.
Jacobi finished more than 15 motos inside of the top fifteen but had his share of bad luck as well. In the week prior to the MX of Nations in Mantova he picked up a back injury. Due to this he had a few difficult Grand Prix’s including his home round in Teutschenthal. But he kept working hard and gave everything in the final part of the championship to finally finish in 15th position in the final championship standings.
Jacobi has learned a lot during the 2021 season and has become a more complete rider under the guidance of former world champion 500cc, Jacky Martens. The entire JM Racing Honda would like to thank all their partners and fans for their support and we hope to see you again in 2022.
