FREDRIK NOREN TO FILL-IN FOR JUSTIN HILL AT JGR SUZUKI STARTING AT SOUTHWICK

Fredrik Noren gets called up, but this time it is to Suzuki not Honda.

Fredrik Noren will be making his debut with the JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team this weekend at the Southwick National for round six of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. New to the RM-Z, Noren is set to contest the remainder of the Nationals on a Suzuki RM-Z450 while Justin Hill recovers from shoulder surgery. Kyle Chisholm, who rode the High Point and WW Ranch Nationals as a race by race fill-in for Hill, will continue to ride an RM-Z450 with support from H.E.P Motorsports and Suzuki.

Freddie Noren_2019 Hangtown NationalFreddie Noren has raced the first five rounds of the 2019 as a privateer and his season best finish has been 9th overall which he achieved at the Fox Raceway National and also the most recent, Florida National.

“Fast Freddie” has proven to be a serious threat during the opening rounds of the 450 National series, despite the challenge of driving around the country as a privateer. The 27-year-old from Sweden has finished inside the top-ten on multiple occasions and has been on the cusp of a breakout ride. As part of the JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team, Noren will have race and team support as well as a forceful Suzuki RM-Z450 to compete with. He is determined to continue the momentum and success he’s had, and bring fresh talent to the team.

This isn’t the first time that Freddie Noren has had a fill-in ride, he has been under the factory Honda tents multiple times to compete in the Nationals while one of the team’s riders were hurt. 

“I’m really thankful and excited to race for the JGRMX/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team this summer,” said Noren. “The bike and program is a great fit for me and I’m looking forward to getting excellent results together. This opportunity lifts the weight off my shoulders after racing the opening five rounds as a privateer. It is a huge blessing and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.”
