Kiwi Josiah Natzke is to be replaced by Josh Gilbert in Dave Thorpe’s Buildbase Honda team. Natzke had a huge crash at the Spanish round of the EMX250 series and has yet to fully bounce back from that incident. It’s believed the 19-year-old will take a break from UK racing.
It means on-form Josh Gilbert will be promoted from Honda’s satellite team to the main Buildbase squad.
Here’s a look at Natzke before the 2018 season.
