Nathan Watson is heading back to the FIM Motocross World Championship after agreeing terms with Honda SR Motoblouz.
The 26-year-old – the elder brother of 2021 Monster Energy Yamaha MXGP factory signing Ben – raced MXGP up until the end of the 2015 season before switching codes to contest the Enduro World Championship for Red Bull KTM.
An establish beach racer and the first British rider to win the legendary Le Touquet, Watson was also a member of the British Motocross of Nations team that took third place last year at Assen. He will replace Jeremy Van Horebeek who retires at the end of this season and be joined on the team by an as yet unnamed second rider.
