250 West entry list – Shimoda and Hampshire favourites?
The 250 West class is looking strong but unfortunately Haiden Deegan will not be behind the gate and will race East again with rumours suggesting it is because his mechanic is injured!
Jo Shimoda leads the way on his new HRC Honda, but Max Vohland could be the guy to watch on the Kawasaki as should Levi Kitchen, who knows how to win and is also on Mitch Payton’s team, three guys on new teams all ready to show what they got this Saturday night!
Star Yamaha have Nate Thrasher who was in fantastic form last year until injury on the East Coast with the always rapid Jordon Smith completing the Star duo.
Rockstar Husqvarna have RJ Hampshire who is many people’s favourite for the title, while Julien Beaumer makes his supercross debut for KTM with Tom Vialle waiting until East Coast.
Ryder DiFrancesco has made the move to Gas Gas and will be one to watch as will Mitchel Oldenburg on the MotoConcepts Honda, Dylan Walsh is back after some good rides last year and Billy Laninovich, the former KTM man, is back at 40 years old to race the kids!
Garrett Marchbanks and Phil Nicloetti will also make their presence felt as will Carson Mumford.
