“This is my 19th year with Honda, and I am so impressed with the program we have put together in America as the competition here is the best in the world. I am equally proud of the alignment with our new naming partner, Muc-Off. I reached out to them because of their innovative and highly regarded product range as we need to know we can trust the products we use when racing at this level from a partner that also wants to support the future of our sport.” Yarrive Konsky Team owner at Muc-Off Honda Racing
The guys at Muc-Off have been unbelievable, they have already shown a huge level of commitment and support. They are true professionals; their products and their media house are world class. I am excited to work with them to promote our team and the sport. It is important to keep a positive mindset and be focused on what you can control. I will do my best as I always do and aim to improve each weekend, no matter where we finish. Last year I won the opening heat race and I know that no one expected that. We have a great team, good partners and some amazing resources so I am eager to see where this season takes us” Justin Brayton Muc-Off Honda Racing 450SX Rider.
“This season I need to be on the podium every weekend. I know that it will not be easy but that is my goal and I believe we have the bike to achieve that. The whole Muc-Off Honda Racing Team and our partners in the 250 program – KYB, FMF, Twisted Development, JE Pistons, Renegade and Vortex, have ensured that we have a competitive bike so it’s on me to get the job done now.” Mitchell Oldenburg Muc-Off Honda Racing 250SX East Rider
