JGR GETS SERIOUS WITH ITS 2018 RM-Z450 TESTING
JGR is now the official Suzuki team, as all of the other Suzuki teams have closed their doors. The 450 riders will be Weston Peick and Justin Bogle.
Justin Bogle had a breakout summer as part of the RCH Racing Suzuki squad, winning a moto at Thunder Valley, and then capturing his first 450 outdoor overall at Budds Creek. The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is elated to welcome the Oklahoma native to the program. Here’s a look at Bogle’s #19 machine.

Justin Bogle has spent the past two weeks testing at the top secret JGRMX facility in North Carolina. Bogle looked sharp and focused right out of the gate. Justin will spend the bulk of his time at Ricky Carmichael’s GOAT Farm in Florida, while also traveling to JGRMX in North Carolina for test sessions.
Take a look at the metal grate behind the Risk Racing starting gate. Justin Bogle gets the perfect amount of traction during a practice start. These metal starting pads will be used for the Monster Energy Cup and beyond. JGRMX’s new Supercross track was completed on Sunday, September 17th, and the riders started pounding laps the very next day. Weston Peick has basically lived at the JGRMX testing facility since.
The past two weeks have been busy. Suzuki Motor Corporation of America’s MX Support Manager, Chris Wheeler, along with Suzuki of Japan’s engine and chassis engineers, have been instrumental in helping the JGRMX team get prepared for the upcoming season. Support staff from Showa and Yoshimura have also helped out in a big way.
