Confirmed: KMP Honda reveal 2022 rider line up

With the end of last season, the long-time successful rider Jeremy Delince has ended his career with another highlight (overall 5th place ADAC MX Master 2021). Accordingly, the challenge for team manager Alexander Karg was to put together a powerful squad for the professional field. In the 2021 season it was the first complete participation in the MXGP/MX2 GP. What for the new season 2022 again completely Europe-wide will be tackled.

The name KMP Honda Racing should also establish itself at the highest level of motocross sport. In addition to the world championship, the team will of course be competing with a very strong line-up in the ADAC MX Masters and the accompanying classes, which are also international. In the well-staffed competitions held in Germany and Austria, the team has set itself the goal to be in the front ranks again.

As part of the world championship, we will compete in the MXGP with our newcomer Jorge Zaragoza. We would like to welcome you. Jorge Zaragoza is a promising rider from Spain and we are glad to have him for our team.

Jorge Zaragoza:
