Team Suzuki Welcomes Kale Makeham for 2015

Posted:

Team Suzuki has signed Kale Makeham to compete alongside reigning national champion Matt Moss in the 2015 MX Nationals, Australian Motocross Championship, and Australian Supercross Championship season.

Victorian talent Makeham, 21, will ride a Jay Foreman Racing-prepared RM-Z450 in his transition to the premier MX1 ranks after a number of strong seasons in the MX2 and the Under 19s divisions.

"I'm so happy to sign with Team Suzuki and it's always been a goal of mine to step up to the 450s," Makeham commented. "It's a proven championship-winning package and to have Matt Moss as a teammate is a real honour.

"I've always admired the way Jay Foreman operates the team, so I'm very grateful to have this opportunity. It's a strong position to learn in and I feel that the team and equipment doesn't get any better than this. I look forward to having a strong learning year and then to keep progressing from there into the future."

The 2013 season saw Makeham race to the runner-up position in the MX2 national championship, before he finished sixth overall this year with a positive end to the season. Earlier in his career, Makeham also captured the 2012 Under 19s supercross title.

Team manager Jay Foreman is pleased to welcome Makeham to Team Suzuki with Moss, providing a strong platform for enhanced development in what will be his rookie 450 class campaign.

"Kale's a young rider with a lot of potential and I believe that on the RM-Z450 we can get some good results and bring him on for the future," Foreman explained. "He is a grounded person and will fit in well with the team, so we are happy to welcome Kale to Team Suzuki and look forward to getting started."

The opening round of the 2015 MX Nationals season is scheduled for Horsham in Victoria on Sunday, 29 March.
