Adam Collings will make the switch from the 125cc to the 250cc in 2019.
The young Brit is currently competing in the Arenacross UK series in the rookies class. When the outdoor season approaches he’ll be contesting the MX2 Maxxis British Championship and the EMX250 series.
Collings will treat it as a learning year as he’s under no illusions just to how tough the EMX250 class is. The young Brit will race for the Pol Motors Husqvarna team in the European championship.
However, in the British Championship he will race a KTM due to support from premier bikes and KTM UK.
“Pol Motors have been a sponsor of mine for a while now and have always helped us at the supercross races we did, they helped me last year at the EMX125 and we decided to ride with them in the EMX250 this year and do the Dutch masters too. In the uk I’ll be riding a KTM thanks to the support we have from premier bikes and KTM UK and race the maxxis mx2”, Collings told GateDrop.com.
“We don’t really have any expectations for this year, all the riders that do the EMX250 are very good and it is very tough so obviously qualifying is a great achievement. I want to say a huge thank you to vega solutions, putoline, pol motors, premier bikes, hardcore racing, no escape racing, 100%, 6D helmets, leatt protectives, super MX, Dunlop, twin air, YSS , FTR, eat my dirt custom graphics, apico”, added Collings.
