American Honda confirmed today that its official squad‰ÛÓTeam Honda HRC‰ÛÓwill comprise four riders campaigning two classes for the 2021 AMA Supercross/AMA Pro Motocross season.
As previously announced, Ken Roczen and Chase Sexton will compete in the 450 class. In addition, Hunter and Jett Lawrence join the team in the quarter-liter division.
The Australian Lawrence brothers both rode for Factory Connection in 2020, with Jett winning the final AMA Pro Motocross round and earning the Marty Smith Rookie of the Year Award. In recent seasons, Team Honda HRC has focused on the 450 class, but with the recent dissolution of the Factory Connection Race Team following a long and successful collaboration with Honda, the 250 effort is being absorbed into the in-house project for 2021. Factory Connection will continue to work with Team Honda HRC in various capacities.
