Jay Marmont Returns To Racing In Western Australia

Posted:

Some big news coming from Western Australia with Husqvarna confirming that Australian Motocross and Supercross legend, Jay Marmont has been lured out of retirement by a phone call from promoter Willie Thompson, and the offer of a Husqvarna FC 450 from Husqvarna Australia's Jeff Leisk at this years Manjimup 15000.
Marmont will add to a star-studded line-up which includes current MX Nationals one and two placed riders, KTM teammates Kirk Gibbs and Luke Styke as well as US rider Josh Hill and New Zealander Brad Groombridge.

‰ÛÏThis will be my first race since retirement, I haven't raced since the last round in Brisbane, and yet I got the phone call to come and do it by Willie." Marmont explained. "I haven't really been riding, I had a few commitments there with another brand but that kind of fell through a little bit.

"Leisky was kind enough to give me a bike through Husqvarna, so I made a few calls, and got some gear, and a few sponsors and I‰Ûªm coming to do the race, so I'm pretty excited.

"It's hard to stay away from this sport and Manjimup is probably one of my favourite tracks in Australia, I've won a few times there before, and just the movement of going to do a race again is pretty exciting. I‰Ûªve got a stock 450 to pick up over there. Basically since Appin round I've ridden three times! But it‰Ûªll be alright.‰Û
