Fox completes Recover8 KTM Thor squad for 2020 season
New South Welshman to contest MXD category in this year’s MX Nationals.
MXD rookie Blake Fox will complete a three-rider Recover8 KTM Thor squad for the 2020 season, joining already confirmed riders Dean Ferris and Jesse Dobson.
Fox, who claimed the 125cc 15 Years title at Gillman’s Australian Junior Motocross Championship last year, has been a long-time member of the KTM Junior Motocross Racing Team, and will turn the eligible age of 16 just ahead of the MXstore MX Nationals season-opener.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity that both KTM and the RecoveR8 team have given me to graduate into the MXD class early and to stay with KTM after being a member of their junior development program for so long, it feels like I’m staying at home with the family,” Fox explained.
“Obviously I could have stayed down in juniors, but I want to be racing the best level of riders possible and progressing as a racer and athlete. Racing the MX Nationals and working with Dean Ferris and the entire team is only going to benefit my long term career goals. I can’t wait to go racing.”
The opening round of the MX Nationals is scheduled for 4-5 April at Horsham in Victoria.
