With the riders now beginning their winter training and the 2016 motocross season looming, the Heads & All Threads Suzuki team has announced today that Jordan Eccles will be joining Josh Spinks and Neville Bradshaw under their awning next year.

The 17 year old from Pontefract is no stranger to competition with three championship wins to his name, taking the Red Bull 85cc big-wheel title, British 125cc, and is the recently crowned British youth champion.

Now Jordan is moving into the pro ranks and hopes to stamp his mark with the support of the Heads & All Threads Suzuki team.

“It’s going to be a good year to be honest,” says Jordan Eccles. “It’s my first year in the pro class so it’s good to go into it with the strong backing from Neil and the team.

“We’ve done a little bit of testing and the bikes are powerful and handles really nice, so I’m confident 2016 will be a good season.”

Team Manager for Heads & All Threads Suzuki, Neil Prince said on the signing of the talented young rider: “I’d seen Jordan ride throughout the year, but he really came to my attention at the final round of the British championship at Fatcat.

Prince added: “I think it’s good that we can be in a position to help bring young talent through the ranks by giving them an opportunity to have good support and learn from the likes of Josh and Neville. He’ll have a bright future.”
