JGR Suzuki Factory Racing have announced Joey Savatgy will join the team at their 450 rider along side Alex Martin returns to represent the 250 class on his RM-Z250.
Savatgy, who is no stranger to winning on the Suzuki brand, having racked up multiple Championships coming up through the ranks in Suzuki‰Ûªs Amateur Racing Program, will be a great asset to the team as he brings proven talent, speed, and versatility to the track.
During the 2019 Supercross season, Savatgy earned the 450SX Rookie of the Year award and ended the series with five top-five finishes. With 12 professional career wins to his name, he has proven he has what it takes to be up-front on the RM-Z450.
Millville, Minnesota native Martin returns to JGRMX/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki on his RM-Z250. With three podiums and 11 top-five overall finishes in his Supercross career, Martin was proud to add a career-best fifth place finish in the overall points standings on his RM-Z250 last season. A-Mart is eager to build upon those strong results and continue his successful career on Suzuki.
‰ÛÏWe are looking forward to the upcoming season with Joey and Alex," GRMX Team Manager Jeremy Albrecht said. "Joey has achieved very good results over the past few years and I expect him to have a break-out year in 2020. He impressed us in every test session on the RM-Z450 and he is extremely motivated. Alex returns for his second season with the squad and I couldn‰Ûªt be happier. A-Mart made big gains in Supercross this past season and scored multiple outdoor podium finishes, so it will be fun to share in his progress.‰Û
