American Suzuki Teams geared-up for AMA Motocross season
Joey Savatgy will make his Suzuki racing debut aboard his JGR-tuned Suzuki RM-Z450.
The JGRMX/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Racing and Twisted Tea H.E.P. Motorsports Suzuki racers are eager to start the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series as the season kicks off at the famed Loretta's Lynn's Ranch in Tennessee this weekend after a long Coronavirus COVID-19 delay.

Joey Savatgy will make his Suzuki racing debut aboard his JGR-tuned Suzuki RM-Z450 alongside 450 teammate Fredric Noren. Alex Martin and his Suzuki RM-Z250 will represent the JGRMX team in the 250cc class, while Max Anstie - fresh off a moto win in the 2019 World Championship series - sets his sights on American MX wins aboard his H.E.P. Motorsports Suzuki RM-Z450 with teammate Adam Enticknap.

Savatgy joins the battle after a pre-season injury postponed his U.S. racing debut with the Suzuki team. Savatgy is healed up and his RM-Z450 ready for the nine-round 2020 Outdoor Motocross season. ‰Û÷Versace‰Ûª has the speed, equipment, and support to add to his seven career MX wins.

"I‰Ûªm just excited to be back racing," Savatgy enthused. "I haven‰Ûªt raced in the U.S. in almost a year. I‰Ûªm feeling good and the injury is all healed up. The team and I have put in the work and it‰Ûªs up to me to go execute."

Alex Martin has come within a single position of winning the 250 Outdoor MX title in two of the past four years
Alex Martin has come within a single position of winning the 250 Outdoor MX title in two of the past four years. Growing up with one of the series‰Ûª venues on his family's property, ‰Û÷A-Mart‰Ûª is a natural at the high speeds and gritty racing of motocross. The extended break between the Supercross series and the first Outdoor round has given Martin that much more time to reacclimate to his racing specialty ‰ÛÒ outdoor motocross.

"I‰Ûªm very excited to be going back to the races and grateful that [series promoter] MX Sports and the teams were able to figure out a way for us to race this summer." Martin said. Martin is ready to lead more laps and pull in some outdoor wins. "The work has been done, it‰Ûªs time to see where we stack up," added Martin.

Fredric Noren move from fill-in rider to Fulltime in the 450class
Fredric Noren joined the JGRMX team last summer as a mid-season fill-in rider; the Swedish rider's results improved instantly once moving onto the responsive RM-Z450. With a full supercross season on the 450cc machine, look for ‰Û÷Fast Freddie‰Ûª to turn heads and be a threat for podiums early in this summer's racing.

"It‰Ûªs going to be awesome to be back at the races with the team. We‰Ûªve been getting everything ready. Testing and practicing have been really good so I can‰Ûªt wait 'till Saturday!" Noren said.

Team Manger Jeremy Albrecht added: "This is the first season in a long time that I have been this excited to see these guys race. All three of these guys are ready and we have the potential to have our best outdoor season yet. We are ready to get back to racing!"

Max Anstie returns to racing in America after seven years away, and he's doing it through Twisted Tea H.E.P. Motorsports Suzuki‰Ûªs first full season of contesting the AMA Motocross series. Anstie is an outdoor specialist, with MXGP and MX2 World Championship victories and moto wins as well as an historic 2017 individual overall win at the Motocross of Nations. The sand track specialist looks to do well on the American tracks.

"I‰Ûªm looking forward to the Pro Motocross Championship," said Anstie about his return to the U.S. "The team and I have been working hard and we are as ready as we can be. I‰Ûªm excited to go racing!‰Û
