Riders injury update and new rider, Team BUD Racing Kawasaki

Following his crash during the time practice of the MXGP of Argentina, Brian MOREAU 225 got a radius and cubitus crack but the French kid is recovering very well and will start riding again end of next week. The plan is to be back racing for the MXGP of Arco di Trento (Italy) in 2 weeks. He continued to work his physical condition during this break and his motivation is bigger than ever.

Our second MX2 rider Brian HSU who got a back injury just a week prior to the first GP of the season, finally decided to take a break from the MXGP circuit to recover physically and mentally, Brian was so disappointed after working hard to come back to his best level and this new small injury was too much. We wish him the best recovery.

It’s not been easy to find a rider under 23 years old to race the Gp’s but we are happy to officialise the venue of a new rider coming from Venezuela and racing the AMA supercross series to replace HSU aboard the BUD racing Kawasaki’s KXF 250. His name is Lorenzo LOCURCIO (race number 183) and he will race his first GP in Valkenswaard next week. The original plan was to arrive and race Matterley UK GP but Lorenzo got difficulties to get his Passport & Visa on time to fly to UK, all the actual problems in Venezuela create too much delay in administration…

However, the Team will be at British GP to support a young French rider who will race the entire EMX 250 championship, named Jimmy CLOCHET 520.

To finish on a positive point, the Team is happy to announce that their new young recruit Quentin Prugnières (13 years old) won the opening round of the French hopeful championship last weekend in Castelnau de Levis (FR) with brilliant speed and style ! Congrats and welcome kid.

So the Team will be back in full for Arco di Trento with all the riders on the starting gate !
