Nathan Crawford has signed up with the Australian Kawasaki Racing Team and will compete aboard a factory KX450F in 2017.
The 19 year old Queenslander has established himself as one of the most promising motocross and supercross talents in Australia. An untimely incident at the final round of the 2016 MX Nationals cost Nathan the MX2 class lead and left him having to settle with 3rd place in the series overall. Nathan‰Ûªs steady rise through the ranks now sees him take the ultimate step-up into the MX1 (450cc category) with the Kawasaki Racing Team.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm so pumped to be racing in the MX1 class with Kawasaki next year. It‰Ûªs been a personal goal of mine to be on a factory team so to be on the Kawasaki team is a dream come true. I am young and have a lot to learn, but I feel I am ready and I want to get my feet wet in the 450cc class. Having the support of a factory team for the first time will be a huge benefit,‰Û
