Tommy Searle will leave the Dixon squad in 2019 and will ride for the French-based BOS squad alongside Evgeny Bobryshev on Kawasakis.
BOS this week announced they have hired former CLS Kawasaki team boss Jean-Jacques Lusietti, and he revealed live on TV that he has signed Searle to join Evgeny Bobryshev for 2019 in MXGPs and they will be on Kawasakis.
This year, BOS ran Bobryshev on Suzukis and Jordi Tixier on KTM. But Tixier split with the squad this week.
The Dixon team will only run 250s next year and have signed up Darien Sanayei to stay with the British squad.
Bobryshev rides for BOS in GPs on a Suzuki, but the British-based Lombard Suzuki team in the British championship.
So it’s possible Searle, who tested the 2019 KX450 this week, could be signed up by a British Kawasaki team for the UK series.
