Tyco Suzuki MX Team Announced

Team Suzuki Press Office – November 28. Suzuki GB has announced an all-new team for the 2012 British Motocross and Supercross Championships.

The TAS Racing-operated squad has signed 2009 British Champion Stephen Sword and Irishman Stuart Edmonds to race the latest RM-Z450 and RM-Z250 machinery under the Tyco Suzuki banner.

Team Manager Adam Lyons said: “Naturally we’re delighted to announce our final plans for 2012. Stephen was confirmed as our MX1 rider a while back, but to complete the line-up with Stuart in MX2 and confirm our new title sponsor at the same time is great news.

“In Stuart we have a young, keen, but experienced rider who is already familiar with the RM-Z250 and I am sure will be challenging up at the front. Stephen is a class-act who needs no introduction and gives us a very strong team for our second year back in the sport.”

The team riders continue winter testing ready for the first competitive action in the New Year in the remaining rounds of the British Supercross Championship, before beginning their campaigns in the Maxxis British Motocross Championship and the Red Bull Pro Nationals series.
