Johan Westermark (JWR Honda Racing Team Owner):We are happy to have Davy on the team. We want a rider that know what it takes and has speed, Davy has shown speed, so he was on the short list of riders that we wanted on the team. He is talented, works hard and gives his best. He showed very good speed in MX2 before if you have been fighting for top positions you have it, and we want to work with speed. His never give up attitude is what we want from a rider, and to ride for JWR is also about having a big heart and we see that in him”.
