“I am pleased to announce this year’s riders who will be representing Great Britain in the prestigious event of the FIM Junior World Motocross Championship,” said Team GB manager Gareth Hockey in a press release.

“This year the team will be heading over 1,000 miles to Italy. The track was used earlier this year for the MXGP and it is great to see the world’s elite [youth] riders able to compete at the same venue as the top world championship riders.

“It makes my team and I very proud that many of ‘our’ riders will race for their country, and also to have the opportunity to play a wider role in supporting the future stars of the sport as they race at international level in their respective junior classes representing Great Britain.”
