British MX1 rider Lewis Tombs will join the Verde KTM team for 2020. The official news says:
We are pleased to officially announce our new rider for 2020, Lewis Tombs 66. Lewis will race on a 450 SX-F KTM in the MX1 class in the ACU British Championship and the Michelin MX Nationals. Lewis will be joining Brad Anderson under the Verde Substance KTM Awning. Brad will be racing his Two-Stroke SX KTM in the MX2 class both in the same Championships as Lewis. He will also be competing in the EMX2T to hopefully bring home the Championship trophy for the third time. Dominic Lancett shall remain with the team and will move up to the MX2 class once fit for racing, after his ACU operation last year.
Team Manager. Adrian Kirk, ‘It is a pleasure to have Lewis join the team for this coming season. He is already adapting well to the KTM and we are confident that he will do well in both series. Brad is excited to be allowed to race his Two-Stroke in the 250cc Class and will definitely be worth watching. Dominic on the other hand, is itching to get back on the bike after being injured for the past 6 months. It will be tough moving straight up to MX2 from injury, but we are know that Dominic will give 100%’.
