TEAM Honda GARIBOLDI is proud to announce its new line up for the 2014 season to compete in the MX2 World Championship with 17 year-old Slovenian TIM GAJSER who will team up with 23 year-old Japanese rider KEI YAMAMOTO.

Tim Gajser, probably the youngest top rider in MX2, will take part in his first full World Championship season in 2014. Tim has enjoyed top success on the small bikes throughout his career becoming the European Champion in 65cc, 85cc and 125cc and collecting also the 125cc World title in 2012. Gajser is the hottest prospect in MX today.

Kei Yamamoto, in 2014 will begin his new career on the global motocross scene racing in the MX2 class after winning titles and becoming Champion young rider in Japan in 2005 and 2006 and adding the MX2 Japanese title in 2012 and finishing second in 2013. A big challenge for one of the few Japanese riders seen competing a full season in the World Championship.

For the 2014 season the Team will start a new cooperation and challenge with HRC, Honda Racing Corporation, and will benefit from a full technical support for the Honda CRF250Rs.

The Team will also be engaged in the EMX250 championship with the winner of the 2013 Honda 150 European Championsip, the Italian 15 year-old Filippo Grigoletto with a CRF250R. Grigoletto won the first edition of the very succesful and competitive series on board the CRF150R, and this series will be replicated in 2014 and is already attracting many riders from all over Europe.

For the new season the team has also implemented his staff with the addition of the well known in the paddock and experienced Manola Puletti with the role of team coordinator.

Giacomo Gariboldi, Team Manager: "We are delighted to start this completely new challenge in MX2, we are honored to be part of this project with Honda and HRC and we will work as hard as we can to meet the expectations of all the people who have invested in our team."
