Rikki Priest, ex motocross rider and current trainer has set up a new race team for the 2016 season! Rikki will be running with Husqvarna machinery and will have a ten rider line up for the fast approaching season.

Aaron Collins will compete in the AMCA MX1 class with Jack C Bas competing in the AMCA MX2 class.
Rikki have a lot of youth riders for the up and coming season with Jack Wankling, Scott Davison and Pip Davies all on the 125cc Husqvarna machinery.

Rikki Priest – “Very excited to have the backing of some great sponsors for 2016 which has given me the opportunity to put together a great 10 man line up From little Elvis who is only 5 years old through to current Amca mx 2 champion. I wish all the riders the best of luck.”
Luke Burton – “After a good 2015 wining the British AMCA MX2 title I feel like the time is right to move up to MX1 for 2016 in the British Championship, AMCA and IMBA international Championships. I feel like I need help to move to the next level so I’ve moved over to the WH-Marten Frasers Husqvarna UK team with Rikki Priest. Rikki will be working closely with me to try get the best out of me with my mechanic Mark Jordan and Colin Jalland from SPS suspension. I really like the new bike already, I feel like it’s the best bike to have – the fc450 husqvarna in 2016. Thank you to all my friends, family and sponsors”
