Well known motocross Freestyle rider Jamie Squibb has confirmed that he will be using Kawasaki machinery in his amazing shows throughout 2013 and beyond.
In the past, Jamie used the much loved KX250 two-stroke as his machine of choice. Now, four-stroke machines dominate the off-road scene and the Exeter based rider has now selected the top of the range KX450F as his weapon of choice.
Having ridden two-stroke machinery for much of his motocross and freestyle career, the decision to switch to a four-stroke bike was difficult but necessary. Having trained exhaustively at his custom made jump area and practice track in the south west of England, 31 year old Squibb has refined his riding style for the power-delivery and weight balance of the KX450F and fallen in love with the lime green racer.
With a wide selection of appearances booked for the 2013 season across the UK, Jamie can be seen at events including the Red Bull Pro National series, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Motorcycle Live and even six days at the Isle of Man TT racing festival !
“I have always had a soft spot for Kawasaki”, said Jamie. “Whilst it has taken me a while to convert to four-stroke machinery, as soon as I got on the bike I loved it. The power is so responsive, and the new air suspension works fantastically for the demanding performance cycles I put it through. I can’t wait to get jumping in front of the huge crowds that turn up to the events I have in my calendar”.
Kawasaki Motors UK Racing Coordinator, Ross Burridge commented. “I previously worked with Jamie when he used the KX250. When he got on the phone to ask about the KX450F I was quick to get him a bike and persuade him it was the way to go. I’m really pleased he is now using Kawasaki machinery again and look forward to witnessing the amazing stunts and tricks he performs during a busy 2013 season”.
