Justin Barcia and Weston Peick will ride for the JGR team next season which is switching from Yamaha to Suzuki. The JGRMX Suzuki team, led by team owner Coy Gibbs, will feature Barcia and Peick in the 450 class aboard Suzuki RMZ450s and two riders in the 250 class aboard Suzuki RM-Z250s, who are yet to be named. Just as he has done the past several seasons, Phillip Nicoletti will join the squad and race the entire Motocross season on the 450 and will substitute if needed during Supercross.
“Having the support of Suzuki, and racing the championship-winning RMZ450 really sets us up for an exciting year of racing,” said Gibbs, “We have great confidence in our riders, and we’re thrilled we can provide them with RMZ450s to race. We have discussed fielding a 250 effort for several years, our entire team is pumped about this strategic partnership that includes both the RMZ450s and RMZ250s with Suzuki and we’re looking for great things,” he added.
