As Dirt Bike Rider exclusively revealed on Facebook and Twitter yesterday, Buildbase Honda have announced the signing of Nez Parker for the 2014 season in the MX1 class. The former Grand Prix point’s scorer will campaign aboard the Honda CRF450R.

Following an injury struck start to 2013 – Parker returned to competitive racing towards the end of this season and produced a string of strong results. These strong results included a number of top five finishes, along with a fifth overall in both the Maxxis British Championship and the Red Bull Pro Nationals.

For 2014, Nez Parker will be competing in the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship, Red Bull Pro Nationals Championship and the Phoenix Tools Premier MX Championship.


“Nez is a strong and fast young rider, who has a proven track record with GP point’s scoring results to match,” says Dave Thorpe, Buildbase team Manager. “Since his return from injury late in the season, Nez has produced a string of impressive results, which after a solid winter of testing and training we hope to be able to build upon.”

“It’s not every day that a World Champion approaches you with the chance to ride for his team, it’s an unreal opportunity,” a delighted Parker commented. “I have rode Honda’s a few years back and feel at home on the bike. With Dave and the whole of the Buildbase Honda team behind me, I’m looking forward to the 2014 season.”

We are too Nez!
