Empire Kawasaki confirm MX1 rider Jayden Rykers
The direct collaboration between Kawasaki Motors Australia and Empire Kawasaki is entering into the third full season. Tyson Cherry and Empire Motorsport will run the largest Kawasaki supported Motocross racing effort in the 2021 Australian Motocross Nationals (ProMX) with Rykers as their MX1 rider.
Jayden Rykers has been building on the training and preparation from 2020 to pilot the Kawasaki KX450 onto the podium in the MX1 class for Empire Kawasaki in 2021. He says that the training leading up to the opening round is looking promising for good results in the season.
“My training has been good in the lead up to the opening round. I got going earlier than we normal. After a full season off the bike I wanted to make sure I gave myself plenty of time to build and not rush the process.” Said Rykers.
“I’m loving the 2021 KX450. It is such a rideable bike; from the way it handles, to the power delivery, it’s a good package to be working with… I’m looking forward to getting back to racing, that is what I have missed the most.”
