After much uncertainty whether or not there would be a South African team for this years Assen MXON. We would proudly like to announce our official team.
MX1 – Michael Docherty
Mx2 – Anthony Raynard
MxOpen – Lloyd Vercueil
Team Manager – Jenna Reeh
Reserve Riders – Joshua Mlimi, Matthew Malan & Tristan Purdan
This years rider decision was once again based on the current points leaders in MX1 & 2 in South Africa at the time of selection. The selection of Michael Docherty, was based on his performance at last years Red Bud MXON with an outstanding win in the B Final in horrendous conditions.
This year we have an amazing team backing us yet again with generous sponsors on board. However, the biggest supporter and number 1 fan of our team Mr Wayne King, will unfortunately not be able to join us due to medical and health circumstances. However, Wayne will be on the team in full force from back home every minute of the way. You are truly going to be missed this year Wayne.
This years team would not be made possible without the generous sponsors and I would like to personally take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you that have come on board. Some familiar faces and some new.
With less than 2 months until the gate drops, our riders will all be preparing for the race of the year.
