Doug Turney got some great shots of the JGR MX set-up when he spent a day with the guys recently at their facility and produced an interesting photo gallery of what it’s like behind the scenes and outside fancy trucks of race day at a supercross.
The JGRMX headquarter’s retail shop is open to the public so their fans can get the latest JRGMX merchandise. Plus you never know who you might see.
As if having the actual bikes in the shop is not enough, a picture of Bogle’s bike is the team’s wallpaper.
This is first year of a three contract with Factory Suzuki. JGRMX is now Suzuki’s factory team in both the 250’s and 450’s.
Team manager Jeremy Albrecht (JBone) has been the only manager of the team and remains a key member not only at the races but also back at headquarters. JBone was James Stewart’s mechanic for seven championships and Jeff Emig’s four titles. Jeremy is one of the most visible managers at the race track.
JRGMX isn’t just proud of their current riders, they are proud of their history and of the riders who rode for them in the past.
The entrance of JGRMX’s headquarters as seen from the second floor. The second floor houses their engine, weld, print, suspension, and inspection shops. It also has a small photo studio along with storage rooms.
Just some random suspension parts sitting in the wash basin outside the suspension shop.
JRGMX’s weld shop isn’t that large but they do have access to a much larger shop over at the JGR NASCAR shop. JGRMX is able to utilize the additional engineering and manufacturing resources of the NASCAR team.
Travis Soules is teamed up with Weston Peick this year.
Jeremy Albrecht talks with Justin Hill after Justin’s outdoor testing and practice session. The team has a relaxed atmosphere at their headquarters and at the races but that doesn’t mean they aren’t driven to win races and championships. Every member knows what needs to be done to achieve those goals.
JGRMX’s supercross track is red clay similar to what is used for the Atlanta Monster Energy Supercross race.
Justin Hill takes a break from his testing to visit and watch the other guys practice on the supercross track. After hanging out with team for the day I realized their day at the track is the same everyone else’s, little bit of riding, hanging out with your friends, some more riding, and taking about that night’s poker night. The only difference….they ride a lot faster.
One last adjustment before Malcolm Stewart’s first practice.
