Martin Jessopp has just beaten the likes of Dunlop, Martin and Hutchinson to become the winner of the first North West 200 Supersport race of the week.
Speaking to the immediately after his victory, Somerset man Jessopp said that he was ‘lost for words’ after his first every NW200 victory.
“We’re basically a family-run team. Myself and my old man. It’s huge for us. We don’t really have any sponsors to worry about but all the boys involved put in a huge amount of work”.
His win is placed even further into context when you realise that Jessopp doesn’t ride for a factory team. His Triumph isn’t sponsored by the Triumph company and unlike his peers within the paddock, he doesn’t hold much by way of corporate sponsorship.
