Ken De Dycker Joins 24MX Honda Racing

Posted:

Honda‰Ûªs MXGP satellite team 24MX Honda Racing has reached an agreement with Belgian star Ken De Dycker to race the 2016 World Motocross Championships.

For De Dycker, 31, it will be a highly anticipated return to the Honda CRF. The long-time Honda rider is about to compete his sixth GP season in red.

With more than 175 GPs, an MX of Nations title and 15 moto wins in the top category behind his name Ken is one of the most experienced top riders currently competing in the FIM MXGP World Championship.

Since 2006 the popular, lanky Belgian collected six top-five overall finishes in the series. On a national level he has British, German and Belgian MX1 titles under his belt.

De Dycker experienced a rocky 2015 season fracturing his right shoulder in the German GP and missing the rest of the MXGP season. However he proved to be fully recovered by the end of the summer leading Team Belgium to third, in what was his fifth MX of Nations podium visit.

‰ÛÏI am really happy with my new start at 24MX Honda Racing." De Dycker enthused. "I‰Ûªm very motivated to prove myself and bounce back after two disappointing years.

"As I started to test the 24MX Honda CRF450R I couldn‰Ûªt help but getting all excited and riding with a big grin on my face! The bike is very easy to ride yet it‰Ûªs pretty powerful.

"I have some unfinished business in MXGP so I‰Ûªm thrilled about this new challenge.

"A big thanks to all my fans who have stayed with me throughout these difficult times!‰Û
