Since becoming the only factory motocross operation for Suzuki in the world, the JGRMX outfit has ballooned in size. For 2019 the team will have seven total riders through the 250 and 450 classes, with some contesting the full season and others only Supercross. The RM-Z250 and RM-Z450 bikes will be built with Yoshimura exhausts, JE pistons, ProTaper handlebars and sprockets, Hinson Racing clutches, Excel wheels, D.I.D. chains, and an assortment of in-house parts. Jeremy Albrecht continues his tenure as Team Manager while Buddy Antunez assists as Riding Coach and guide for the 250 class riders.
Justin Hill will advance to the 450 class and the rookie will wear O’Neal gear, 6D helmets, Gaerne boots, and SCOTT goggles. Hill will race both Supercross and motocross.
Chad Reed has joined the team in what now is a Supercross-only capacity and many expect this could be one of, if not the final, years of his professional racing career. Reed will wear Fox Racing helmets, gear, and boots with SCOTT goggles.
Weston Peick is signed with the team, but it’s uncertain when he will race as he continues to recover from the numerous face injuries he sustained at the Paris Supercross in November. When it’s time to return to riding, Peick will wear FLY Racing helmets and gear, Alpinestars boots, and SCOTT goggles.
Alex Martin, Jimmy Decotis, Enzo Lopes, and Kyle Peters will make up the four-rider 250 class. Due to a new agreement signed by the team, all four riders will wear matching gear from Answer Racing, Arai helmets, Gaerne boots, and SCOTT goggles.
