Bud Racing Kawasaki have signed-up USA’s Mitchell Harrison for the 2020 MX2 FIM Motocross World Championship.

Joining the team in April, Mitchell had to discover everything in Europe and made good improvements through the season as he started to score regular top ten since the German GP.

The 21 year-old-American is currently 17th in the series and with a few more months of European experience he will be stronger when the 2020 World Championship kick-off at the end of February. He will also race the French Elite series.

“It’s been an amazing experience racing here, I came over here in April not knowing what to expect and the Bud Racing Team treated me like a family member,” said Mitchell.

“It’s cool to have another year with them and a chance to fill in on the podium with them, so very excited!

“Next year I will know most of the tracks and I will be more adapted to the bike, we already work on that between the races but now we’ll have a full winter to do that.

“The racing is amazing here, the tracks are unique, different than in the US but I like that”.

For team owner Stephane Dasse, giving another chance to Mitchell was one of his goals as everyone in the team enjoy working with him.

“We’re happy to work with him next season, he came late in Europe and had to discover everything. He improves a lot through the season, has a good mentality and we think that after a good preparation during winter and some more European experience he will be able to get strong results.

“We’re happy to enter again the MX2 World Championship with him, and he will have two top-level young team-mates to compete and fight in front of the European EMX250 and EMX125 series and French championship.”
