Jan Wagenknecht signs EMX250 deal with TM

The Steels Dr Jack TM team have confirmed they’ll run two EMX250 riders for the 2022 season. The team have agreed a deal with young Czech rider, Jan Wagenknecht who makes the move from the JD Gunnex KTM team after contesting selected rounds of the MX2 World Championship last year.

Wagenknecht will now fully focus on the EMX250 series as well as the Italian MX2 championship.

The Steels Dr Jack TM team announced the signing in the following statement:

The Team Steels Dr Jack TM Racing SpA have decided to add another rider to our Emilio Scuteri. This is a promising young Czech rider, Jan Wagenknecht.

Wagenknecht, born in 2003, has agreed a deal with the team to contest the EMX250 series and the Italian Pro Prestige Championship riding the new TM 250 FI Twin. Jan is certainly a very interesting profile and the hope is that training together with Emilio and contesting a series of high-level competitions can help grow further to achieve good results.

Soon Wagenknecht will be in Italy to spend time with the team in Sardinia to start the preparation for the season. His participation in the Internazionali d’Italia MX will be decided in the vicinity of the demonstration.
