It is that time of year, where the rumour mill will be spinning around and MX Vice has an exclusive for you! Following the success that Team JSR have had in the AMCA Championship this season, we spoke to Jamie Smith, who is now flying solo after his split from Simon Lane, to confirm those team rumours and talk about plans for next year.
The team will now be running under the Jamie Smith Honda Racing banner, so we will be seeing more Honda’s around the paddock! “I am so excited for 2019,” Smith said. “It is an exciting time running my own team, especially with the riders we have got signed up. My wife has had enough of me going on about it already!”
The riders confirmed for Team JSR heading into 2019 are James Dodd (MX1 and IMBA), Ashley Thomas (MX1), Bradley Tranter (MX2 and IMBA) and there is potentially room for another rider in the MX2 class. The team will be taking part in the AMCA Championship, as well as the Bridgestone British Masters and the Maxxis, and get stuck into the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race this year to top it all off. Thunder Road Honda are a massive part of the team for the third year running, They will be having a fresh new look with JT Racing Kit coming aboard too.
