There appears to be fresh news arriving from the offices of Race FX on a weekly basis at the moment as their investment in both Motocross and Arenacross continues in a way that can only be good news for the sport.
Earlier this week they announced that as the current two-stroke resurgence continues they have recruited a second 125 rider, Bobby Bruce, to join Joel Rizzi finalising their six rider line-up.
For those not familiar that’s Jake Shipton and Nathan Dixon on the all-new 2018 YZ450F and Henry Williams and Ben Clarke on the YZ250F. If you’re in the area you can meet the whole team this Saturday from 10am at the official team launch at Crescent Motorcycles, Verwood.
Brian who famously enjoyed a very successful career in GPs knows exactly what it takes to win races at the highest level. It’s clear with his approach to fitness, style and technique all six of the RFX Crescent Yamaha riders will be going into the 2018 season with the additional confidence that comes from having a GP winner getting them ready to do battle.
“For the 2018 season we’ve joined forces with Crescent Motorcycles and Yamaha UK to put together our most complete team yet with six very talented young riders,” said Race FX MD, Paul Irwin.
“Brian joining the team with his experience and professionalism will undoubtedly give our riders a clear advantage as they take on the country’s most competitive championships such as the Michelin MX Nationals.”
“I’m really happy to announce that I’ll be joining RFX Crescent Yamaha,” said Jorgensen. “After spending time with the team in Spain this week I’ve seen that everyone involved has the work ethic, passion and dedication to racing that I can relate to.
“Coaching and managing riders gives me the opportunity to take everything I’ve learnt during a successful GP career and help them achieve their true potential.
“This new position alongside managing riders such as Kemea Yamaha’s Vsevolod Brylyakov still allows me enough time to continue to run my MX coaching school which I’ll also be running in the UK this year.”
