Alfredo Bevilacqua, Assomotor Honda Team Manager: “I’m really honoured to become a member of the Honda family with only two years of experience in the Motocross World Championship. With Honda Motor Europe, we are very excited to bring into the team Valentin Guillod for the next season in MXGP along with Alessandro Lupino, and in the European Championship, we believe that we have a good line up with Mathys Boisramè and Alberto Forato. I’m very happy for this new cooperation with Honda Motor Europe, and I’m sure that we will be able to achieve good results with this strong team next season.”

Valentin Guillod: “I’m really happy to be part of the Honda family, and I’m really looking forward to trying this new CRF450R. I watched Bobryshev riding on it the last GPs, and it was impressive. I’m going to ride for the first time out on the Honda CRF450R at the Geneva Supercross 2-3 December 2016, and I will do all that I can do to represent Honda and the team in the best way in the MXGP class.”

I’m excited for next year  and I want to thank Honda and the Assomotor Team for this opportunity.”
