Team Penrite-Pirelli CRF Honda Racing are poised to hit the Supercross Championship this weekend with round 1 at Jimbooma, Queensland on 15th October 2018.
With many teams fielding a bunch of overseas guest riders, Penrite-Pirelli CRF Honda Racing has opted to stick with the two locally based team riders for the highly contested series.
Current SX2 Australian Supercross Champion, Jackson Richardson
is fired up to take his #1 Honda 250 to the line to defend his championship following a shoulder injury sustained at the Wonthaggi round of the MX Nats Series this year.
“I’m stoked to be back on the bike and ready to race the Supercross Championship with the team. Its been a long break and I’ve been working really hard on my rehab and my plan is to find my feet at round 1 and build into the championship to challenge again for the series by the final rounds”, enthused Richardson.
Fellow team mate Kyle Webster who suffered from a severe broken back from last years Supercross Championship has been able to fight back and have a successful MX Nats Series with a couple of round wins is exited to back in the Supercross area.
“I can’t wait to go racing Supercross this year. I’ve built on my racing this year. I love my bike set up and really look forward to strong series,” Says Webster.
Team principal, Mark Luksich, a long-time Supercross enthusiast cant wait to get started.
“Supercross is great fun and extremely intense. This year our class is packed with great riders and my team have been working super hard to get ready for the challenge”.
