Strijbos i Jasikonis objavili za koga će voziti iduće godinu u MXGP-u

Nova supercross sezona kreće u subotu utrkom u Anaheim 1, dok MXGP svjetsko motocross prvenstvo je također veoma blizu. Upravo zbog toga mnogi vozači koji su bili bez timova su počeli objavljivati što će biti u 2018. godini. Tako primjerice dva vozača za kojeg se sumnjalo za koga će voziti iduće godine su sada i službeno objavili detalje novog tima.

Veteran MXGP klase Kevin Strijbos je objavio da će voziti za Standing Construct KTM tim u 2018. godini. Poznati Belgijski vozač je potpisao ugovor samo na jednu godinu te se nada da će ove godine uspjeti završiti godinu unutar prvih 5.

Kevin Strijbos: I am really happy to sign a deal to ride for Standing Construct KTM. The team has proven in the past, when they were a GP winning team in MX2, to be very professional and well organized as well as having the know-how and the infrastructure to be competitive on the highest level. I had some good offers from other teams but having the guarantee with the Standing Construct KTM team that I will be in a team that gives me together with their factory support all the needs to perform at the highest level made me quickly decide to sign with them. I would like to thank Sylvain Geboers for all the things he did for me, he was the one who brought me into the world of top motocross many years ago and who kept believing in me al these years.

Tim Mathys / Standing Construct KTM: Kevin has proven throughout his career that he is a great rider and that he’s more than capable of getting great results when he feels comfortable on the bike and in the team. He is one of the more experienced riders of the MXGP paddock with still a lot of ambition and we are convinced that we can give him the material and surroundings that he needs to satisfy him. When the news was spread that we would make a comeback in the MXGP paddock I was contacted by a lot of riders but Kevin gave me the most motivated and “hungry” impression. I am confident that together with our experience and for Kevin with a crew that he knows well, we will have a good 2018 season.

Mladi vozač Arminas Jasikonis, za kojeg mnogi misle kako bi mogao biti vrlo ozbiljna prijetnja u 2018. godini, potpisao je za Assomoto Honda tim. 

Arminas Jasikonis: I am very happy that I have signed with Assomotor Honda after the year we had it has been hard and with so many riders but I am glad that we got the deal done. I have been on the bike now for about two months, and I really like it and I am looking forward to get racing going. I would like to thank my agent Jamie Dobb and Alfredo Bevilacqua for this chance to show what I can do on the big bike. I had a very hard year with injuries so I am just looking forward getting back to the level I know I can ride and staying healthy”.
