It's that time of the year, folks! Team announcements for next year are starting to filter through and unsurprisingly the British-based Phoenix Tools Honda team are one of the first to confirm their plans. Barry Moore, the team owner, did exactly the same thing last year, as he was so pleased with Gert Krestinov and Carlton Husband.
It seems that the situation beneath the awning has not changed at all, as both riders will return in 2018. "Phoenix Tools Honda are pleased to announce that we have re-signed Gert Krestinov and Carlton Husband for the 2018 season," Moore wrote on social media. "We will again be competing in the British Maxxis, Michelin MX Nationals and selected GPs in the MXGP class."
Gert Krestinov currently sits second in the Maxxis British Championship, just thirty-nine points down on the series leader, whilst Carlton Husband runs fifteenth.
