Relentless Suzuki British MX: 2011 Line Up

2011 British Motocross

Relentless Suzuki by TAS will run Suzuki GB’s officially-backed British Championship Motocross team this year with new signings Gordon Crockard and Mel Pocock.

Relentless Suzuki by TAS, which was recently confirmed as the importer’s main supported team in the British Superbike Championship, now take on responsibility for Suzuki in the British and Red Bull MX Championships, managed by ex-Grand Prix rider Adam Lyons.

A former British motocross championship rider himself with Suzuki, team owner Philip Neill will also be involved in the day-to-day running of the team.

Philip Neil says: "I’m absolutely delighted to announce our return to motocross and especially pleased to come back with an established performer like Gordon and young talent in the form of Mel. With Adam onboard as Team Manager and the full backing of Suzuki GB, we are excited to be back flying the Suzuki flag in the British Motocross Championship bringing some fresh, tough new competition to the paddock."

George Cheeseman (Suzuki GB Marketing Manager) says: "With TAS now our officially supported team in road racing and BSB, it made perfect sense to look to them for our motocross campaign, especially when you consider their experience, expertise and passion for the sport."

Gordan Crockard says: "After a tough couple of seasons, I’m feeling extremely positive for 2011 and looking forward to being able to just concentrate on racing once again. With a strong team like TAS behind me and a great bike like the RM-Z450, it’s got to be one of the best shots I’ve had in a long time at doing something special."

Mel Pocock says: "It’s important to feel like you’re taking a step forward with a new team and from the moment I met with Philip and Adam, I knew I was dealing with guys that shared the same desire to succeed. The RM-Z250 is acknowledged by most to be the best in its class in standard form and having tested it recently I’m now feeling very optimistic for the season ahead."

The team now prepare for the first round of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship on March 6th at Little Silver in Devon.
