The team has so much knowledge and experience to invest into their riders, we really feel this is the best environment for our young riders to accelerate their skills into success. Ruben is a talent I have studied for the past four years and have watched him climb into the elite group in MX2, right through from EMX250. He has the perfect career example to inspire Joel and Axel, they can both learn from Ruben and at the same time push Ruben to always try to be the fastest kid on the team. Between now and the season start in April, it will be exciting to see the positive impact of youthful energy and talent partnered with the professionalism and expertise of the Honda 114 Motorsports Team. I’m delighted with the potential and look to 2021 with a positive vision.”
