After climbing through the ranks with Team Green from KX85 to KX250F in the MXY2 class in 2017 – 15 year old Lewis Hall has signed a deal to stay with Team Green for 2018 as is moving up to the MX2 class!
Lewis’ rise through the MX class perfectly illustrates the potential he has as a dirt rider. By winning all of his 16 MX Nationals MXY2 races so far in his Rookie season, Lewis has proved his mettle. He has gelled well with the Kawasaki KX250F bike this season and his partnership with the bike will continue well into 2018 as he moves up to the MX2 class.
An excited Lewis Hall says, “It’s great to sign for another year. I’m really looking forward to stepping up to the MX2 class next year and happy to be staying on the KX250F. I’m just taking everything in my stride and doing my thing. Looking forward to seeing what tracks are on the calendar when the dates are released soon.”
It has also been confirmed that Lewis will be competing in the 2017 Maxxis British Championship. In addition to this, he will also be racing in select rounds of the EMX250 series.
Racing Co-ordinator at Kawasaki Motors UK, Ross Burridge, says, “What Lewis has achieved in his maiden year on a KX250F is unbelievable. To have the composure to win every race in a Championship to date shows just what a class rider he is, and I really believe that he will transition to the MX2 class with ease in 2018. Having him as part of Team Green is a pleasure, and I hope that he continues to amaze both us, and the wider Motocross community next season and beyond.”
