One of the worst kept secrets has been revealed, as it was confirmed earlier today that Jake Nicholls and Josiah Natzke have moved to Buildbase Honda for next year. Nicholls will replace Graeme Irwin, who has moved to KTM UK, in MX1 and Natzke will fill the seat that Martin Barr left behind after moving to REVO Husqvarna.
“Finally I can let out the new change,” Natzke wrote on his social media accounts. “Stoked on signing with @HondaRacingMX for the next year. A brand I’ve always thought highly of and can’t wait to get started.” Nicholls, on the other hand, simply stated that he is “so pumped on this.“
Both riders will compete in the Maxxis British Championship and Michelin MX Nationals, but it remains to be seen if Natzke will venture over to Europe to compete in EMX250.
