Thumbs Up for JK RacingFriday, December 30, 2005 | 6:59 AM
The successful adventure into the World Motocross Championship for
the fresh-and-young fashioned JK Racing Team will continue in 2006 with
the same exciting and friendly spirit that gave JK Racing immense
popularity in the World MX scene.
Boosted by the huge passion of team owner and manager Riccardo Boschi, JK Racing will use again Yamahas. As far as the line up goes, JK Racing wouldn't be the same without the presence of charismatic French ace Luigi Seguy, who will face in 2006 the challenge of battling with the other stars of the MX2 class. '"I am so happy to race the MX2 class guys," commented Seguy. "The class is really interesting in 2006. There will be an amazing level of competition, and I can't wait to be in action in Zolder to make those guys go through a hard season."
After being affected by several physical problems, Luigi Seguy is back in perfect shape, and he may really surprise his contenders in the highly battled MX2 division.
"I am sure Luigi will surprise most of us," added Riccardo Boschi.
"He is one of those guys with so much heart and motivation that he,
himself, is such a great show in the track. He is hungry and wants
revenge for not having always been physically able to give all he had
in the last season. I know him very well and
I am sure he will fight like a lion."
JK Racing will count also on young French perspective and outdoor
specialist Loic Leonce. Leonce had first contacts with JK Racing in the
off season as he entered under the JK Racing colors in a few events, in
particular the Genoa SX, where he paraded in the amazingly beautiful
yellow-black look that caught
everyone's attention from the international MX community.
"Loic is a really nice guy," said Boschi. "He is a pure motocross
specialist and will sure work hard to show everyone what he's capable
of. We have another exciting program for the season to come, and Loic
fits that perfectly. We all can't wait for the 2006
series to start. We are excited; we had great TV exposure in 2005 in Italy. It was amazing, and we are so pleased with that."
