Xavier Boog joins 24MX Honda Racing

Posted:

24MX Honda has signed Xavier Boog to contest the 2014 World Motocross Championship in the MX1 class.

The fast Frenchman will contest the MXGP Championship alongside Jens Getteman on the Honda CRF450R. After a transitional 2013 season the GP-winning outfit owned and managed by Steven Lettani will act again as Honda‰Ûªs official support team in the premier FIM Motocross World Championship class next year.

2014 will be Boog ‰Ûªs fifth season at the highest level of the sport. The stylish 25-year old rider has developed into a fast and consistent contender. A double French MX1 champion, Xavier has recorded three consecutive 7th place series finishes from 2010 till 2012. He won one MX1 moto in 2012 and represented his country in the MX of Nations twice.

‰ÛÏFirst of all I‰Ûªm really happy to have found a good team. At 24MX Honda I will be working again with Luc Bruggeman as well. He used to be my mechanic at the Kawasaki Factory team and he‰Ûªs one of the most experienced spanners in the business," Boog said.

"Actually I have never been on a Honda before in my career. It sounds a bit crazy given their excellent reputation but Honda is the only bike I have not raced yet! That‰Ûªs another reason why I‰Ûªm really looking forward to the future. In a couple of weeks time I should get the green light to start riding again! This new challenge just feels great.

Underlining the team‰Ûªs ambition to develop motocross talent the talented Jens Getteman (20) will start his second second campaign on the capable 24MX Honda CRF450R. Getteman, a former Belgian MX2 champion, experienced a challenging debut season in MX1, marred with injureis. In the opening part of the season Jens showed his skills and promise with strong pre-season results and two LCQ wins in Qatar and Thailand.

‰ÛÏI am really looking foward to next season. I have enjoyed working with the team and the bike fits me like a glove! It‰Ûªs been tough to be sidelined for most of the GP season but my motivation is higher than ever," Getteman said.

"To see the positive steps 24MX Honda is taking now and to have a strong team mate like Xavier gives me a boost as well. That... And having witnessed team Belgium winning the Motocross of Nations. It would be awesome to reach that level myself in a couple of years time!‰Û
