The teams initiative in support for amateur level riders will continue as well as Suzuki supported ride days to offer Suzuki riders the chance to be a part of all things SR75 and Suzuki.

“I am very happy for 2020 and to continue racing with the team,” said Lefrancois. “We have had a fantastic year in 2019 and I cannot wait to get to AX UK and every race of 2020 with my new team-mate so we can go racing and make a great show for the fans. I enjoy working with the team and we have many exciting projects to look forward to with SR75 and every day we do not know what adventure await us.”
“I cannot be more happy with signing to SR75,” said Dercourt. “I want to work with everyone to make the best I can be. I respect this team and now I am a part of this structure I know I can make progress with my racing. I will give everything and race to make good results and I cannot wait to make my debut in Arenacross UK with the team and Charles as my team-mate. I thank Geoff and Jerome for their support to make this happen and I will see you all at the races.”
Team Owner, Geoff Walker: “We couldn’t be happier with the direction we are taking in 2020, it is exciting times and we are so lucky to have some great team sponsors and personnel involved in SR75.
“Bringing Nico on board simply fits with the SR75 style. Nico is a bit of an underdog and we have taken great pride in improving and taking every racer involved with the team to the highest level possible for them to reach. We enjoy this and we have had some great riders come through the ranks with the greatest respect and a smile on their faces.
“To retain Charles was a must as this guy gives his all every week to improve which is all we ask. Adding Jerome into the fold is another positive and we cannot wait to get going in Arenacross UK and the rest of our schedule. We work and the results take care of themselves. Thanks as always to all involved in what we do.”
