Video: Eddie Jay Wade on the 250 at Lommel
Eddie Jay Wade is busy putting in the laps at Lommel as he adapts to life full-time on the 250f machine after initially planning to mix EMX125 with 250f British championship racing.
The Hitachi KTM powered by Milwaukee rider told us he made the switch after strong results in the Spanish championships. “After I did so well and impressed the team manager, KTM allowed me to move up to the 250 for the season, now I will be doing the EMX250 rounds and some MX2 rounds at the end of the season. This is great news, now I don’t have to go on the 125cc and can dedicate all my training and plans to the 250,” explained Wade in our interview.
He also has podium goals for the British MX2 championship: “I want to be battling for a position on the podium and I know it’s going to be hard with some big names in the class. I will get a good reference to where I’m going to be from training with my team mates Conrad and Bas, the two biggest names in the class at the minute.”
