Tetsuhiro Kuwata, #hondaracing Corporation Director and General Manager spoke about the team and the hopes that the successes continue for the #monsterenergy #honda Team, “This year the team has achieved great results in their participations in different competitions around the world, but we are confident that in January we can celebrate an even greater success for everyone with the Dakar #rally.”

After spending a day in the #eicma halls, the five riders of the team will return to the #monsterenergy #honda Team work centre in Barcelona where the following Thursday ‘Dakar Day’, the next presentation, will take place at the #honda Instituto de Seguridad at the #honda Spain facilities in Santa Perpètua de la Mogoda.

Team HRC announce 2018 MX rider line-up at EICMA

On the eve of the annual #eicma Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan, Italy, Team HRC announced its rider line-up for the 2018 FIM #motocross World Championship, MXGP, as part of its traditional factory motorsport announcement.

Tim Gajser, 2016 MXGP World Champion, remains with Team HRC aboard the #243 #honda CRF450RW, and is joined in the MXGP category by Brian Bogers as the 21-year-old Dutchman joins the factory outfit from the HSF Motorsport team.

The third machine under the Team HRC awning will be #calvinvlaanderen who will line up behind the MX2 gate on the #honda CRF250RW. The 21-year-old South African joins #honda, like teammate Bogers, from the HSF Motorsport team as part of the sponsorship deal with Team HRC and HSF Logistics, effective from the 2018 season onwards.

The three #motocross riders were joined on stage by their counterparts in HRC’s factory #motogp, #trial, and Dakar / #rally teams, bringing together a world-beating wealth of talent on two wheels.

Team HRC are testing throughout the off-season in preparation for the opening round of the 2018 MXGP series in Argentina on 3-4 March, where #timgajser has dominated for the last two years.
