After the tragic loss of one of the UK’s brightest motocross talents, his father and various dirt bike companies in the UK are coming together to launch some rider support packages in 2022.
Jude’s dad Mark released a statement over the weekend stating the plans for the Race Team, aimed at helping up and coming riders in the sport and also raising some cash for the air ambulance services on the way.
“Lots of people are asking me “Why are you selling Jude’s stuff” Trust me it’s the last thing I thought I would be doing right now.” Explained Mark.
“We have One hundred and one plus memories of Jude that will stay with us forever and we are in the process of setting up a foundation in Jude’s name the money we raise through the sales (plus some of our own money) will go into this and our plan is to support one/two riders next year to help develop them and reduce some of the cost burden of racing.”
“Along with supporting the riders we are keen to offer sports performance coaching to develop the mental ability of the rider and parents something Jude and I developed becoming a pretty awesome team.”
“We are talking to a number of sponsors and event organisers currently and are discussing ways to raise funds throughout the year to support the foundation. The foundation will still be linked and support the Air Ambulance UK charity.”
“The riders will be chosen with an application process based on their career their ambition their social, their work ethic on and off the bike and how the conduct themselves on and off the track.”
