Honda 150 European Championship Heads to Spain For a Pre-Season Training Camp

Posted:

With the second Honda 150 European Championship just weeks away, all entrants have been invited to Albaida, Spain, to participate in a two day training camp on 22-23 March.

29 rivals from 10 different nations will come face to face for the very first time as preparations for the 2014 campaign continue.

The training camp will provide riders with the chance to become accustomed to the Honda CRF150R, and to receive expert instruction from professional racers to improve their riding skills.

They will be evaluated by a team of FIM Europe experts for physical and sports psychology status checks in order to identify areas which may be improved upon prior to the season start, as well as receiving a sports, nutritional and medical evaluation to check the general health and body composition. And finally, all riders will be instructed in the procedures to be followed at the Motocross Grand Prix and in technical maintenance of the motorcycle.

Three times British MX champion Gordon Crockard will once again be series coach and operations manager in 2014 and will provide the young racers with the benefit of his experience.

Earlier in March, eight Dutch and Belgian riders earned a place in the exclusive Honda 150 European Championship following a selection day in Benelux, and the series now heads to Spain to prepare competitors for what will be a hugely significant year in the lives of all involved.

The latest addition to an already extended 2014 calendar proves Honda‰Ûªs commitment to nurturing new motocross talent. By learning the nuances of the 4-stroke machines that define modern motocross from a young age, the Honda 150 European Championship is giving aspiring future MX stars the strongest boost to their careers.

Davy Dousselaere of Honda Motor Europe expressed his delight at being able to provide the youngsters with a stage to impress.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs really exciting to see the momentum behind the Honda 150 European Championship continuing to build and the series go from strength to strength. From the World Championship MXGP class to grass-roots, Honda are very proud to be committed to supporting motocross." Dousselaere commented.

"At Honda we want to give the fastest 11-14 year olds the best chance to develop and showcase their skills on the international stage. For the riders that have signed up, they are all really excited and can‰Ûªt wait to ride the CRF150R in competition and get expert advice on essential elements such as nutrition and fitness.‰Û
