Anderson stays with Verde Sports KTM – goes MX2
Brad Anderson isn’t getting any younger but clearly loves and has a real hunger for the sport which is great to see.
The British talent, has confirmed he’s staying with the Verde Sports KTM team for the 2020 season. For a number of years, Anderson has raced the MX1 class but for next year he’s decided to make the switch to the MX2 class. Due to a change in rules for 2020, 250cc two strokes can now race in the MX2 class instead of the MX1 class so that’s the reason Anderson will make the change.
It means Anderson will race the MX2 class in the British Championship and the MX National series in 2020.
After missing out on the EMX2T title this year by just one point to Mike Kras, Anderson will contest the series again next year f he can get sponsors onboard – he’ll be hoping to regain the title. The EMX2T series will be cut from seven rounds down too three due to the introduction of the EMX Open class.
“I like riding my 2 stroke and I raced against the 450’s in MX1 this year and I had no chance. With the rules being changed for next year where 250cc two strokes can go in the MX2 class, it was a no brainer really. I am looking forward to going back down to MX2 to see what I can do. Verde Sports and I decided to carry on one more year as it might be my last year as a professional”, Anderson told GateDrop.com.
“If I can get the sponsors in to help do the 3 rounds of the EMX2t series I’ll be doing them. The team will help me get the bikes ready but I’ll be doing them on my own. I would like to thank all my personal sponsors and all the sponsors that have helped me this year, thank you”, added Anderson.
