The Crendon Fastrack Honda team is partnering with Muc-Off, the global leader in bike and motorcycle care and maintenance, for 2021.
Muc-Off will be supporting the team with a full selection of products from their Clean, Protect and Lube systems, which includes the renowned pink Nano Tech Bike Cleaner; the flagship product that launched the brand back in 1994. Muc-Off will also be working with the team to develop and test new off-road products to help them drive their competitive edge while racing.
“I am stoked to be working with Dave Thorpe and the Crendon Fastrack Honda team this year. Dave’s team have a great pedigree and to have elite riders such as Tommy Searle and Jake Nicholls on the team really says it all! We look forward to partnering with them and supporting their quest to clinch the 2021 British Motocross Championship title,” said Alex Trimnell, CEO of Muc-Off.
“As a race team we are constantly evolving and are looking for better performance in many departments. I like to think that Muc-Off run in parallel with that because not only do they have a great product range right now, but they have loads of innovative ideas that are coming in the future that will enhance our performance further in the long run,” said Dave Thorpe, team manager of Crendon Fastrack Honda.
The team will be competing in the top-flight of British motocross championships, the ACU British Motocross Championship and the MX Nationals. Heading up the team are the two fastest motocross riders in the UK: 31-year-old Tommy Searle and 30-year-old Jake Nicholls. Both riders will be riding the all-new Honda CRF450R, and they will both be challenging for the title. New to the team and completing the line-up is 23-year-old Jay Hague who will be riding the Honda CRF250R in the MX2 class.
Both Searle and Nicholls have a wealth of experience between them, having both competed in the World Motocross Championships for over a decade. Searle finished runner up in the MX2 class and Nicholls had a career best of second overall. Both riders retired from the world racing scene within the last few years to concentrate on racing on home soil. Hague, a former youth champion, became a professional rider in 2017 and is being nurtured by triple world 500 champ Thorpe to rebuild his confidence in his ability after a tough start to his career.
Crendon Fastrack Honda will make its British championship racing debut as a team at Culham on the May 1-2. Tommy Searle and Jay Hague will be racing this weekend, April 17-18, at Hawkstone Park in the Bridgestone Masters as a pre-season warm up.
