US pre-season on the cards for Penrite Honda’s Webster
MX2 title contender to contest selected New Zealand MX Nationals rounds.
Penrite Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster is set to embark on a pre-season campaign in America as he prepares for the upcoming 2020 MX Nationals series.
The MX2 title-favourite is understood to be testing with KYB suspension while in the States, where the Penrite Honda team is currently fielding Luke Clout and Mitchell Oldenburg in the 250SX West category of Monster Energy Supercross.
Webster is still uncertain on the final details of his trip, as he also intends to contest rounds two and three of the New Zealand MX Nationals that are due to take place at the end of February and beginning of March.
“It’s sort of just come around, and I don’t completely know what’s happening yet,” Webster explained to MotoOnline.com.au. “I think it will be really cool and a really good experience.
“To be able to ride some different tracks is going to be awesome, I’m really looking forward to it, especially being able to work with those guys over there.
“It’s definitely a solid group of people. I’m going to watch a Supercross as well over there, so that will be sick because it’s been a long time since I’ve been to one. It should be good fun.”
The 23-year-old claimed runner-up honours in the 2019 MX Nationals MX2 title fight before representing Australia at the Motocross of Nations, and then signed a deal with the factory Honda outfit for this season after four years with the satellite CRF Honda Racing squad.
