Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe has signed Julien Lieber for the 2013 World MX2 Championship to ride alongside Briton Max Anstie.
The 18 year old Belgian – who made a brief appearance for the team in 2012 with some promising results when he replaced injured Petar Petrov – will also contest the German ADAC championship and a number of other international events.
Said Lieber: “Last year it was unbelievable to be able to ride a couple of GP’s with the team, but I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to ride a full season with them. It’s such a difference being able to focus on my riding only; before me and my brother did everything ourselves; flights, hotels, transport, bike maintenance etc. I’m really looking forward to the season and being able to progress with my riding now it’s got my 100% focus!”
With Lieber confirmed, Suzuki International Europe has another great addition to its 2013 program – that focuses on the development of talented young riders – and which also includes current 85cc World Champion Brian Hsu (EMX125) and Spanish talent Jorge Zaragoza (EMX2) competing the European Championship rounds from the Rockstar Energy Suzuki camp.
