Motorcycle Superstore / Suzuki Racing is proud to announce their four rider roster to compete on the all-new 2016 RMZ250 in Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. It is a roster mixed with young rookies, and experienced veterans, creating a diverse, fun, and exciting atmosphere.
Jimmy Albertson – 27 years old, from Shawnee, OK. Albertson is a well-known racer and industry personality, as he has built himself a great following. With his focus back on the 250 class, Jimmy and Motorcycle Superstore are looking for stellar results in 2016!
Josh Osby – 19 years old, from Valparaiso, IN. Osby is a name that has been flying under the radar for the past three years. Josh did not have a typical start into racing at a young age. He got his first bike when he was 10 years old and within a matter of four years, after begging his parents to take him racing, he was already battling at the front of the field in the highest level of amateur racing! This summer Josh won a moto in 450 A at Loretta’s. At Monster Cup in the Amateur All Star class this year, he got 4th overall including a 3rd place moto. Just last month, Josh caught our attention by beating numerous factory contracted riders at Monster Cup, in route to his podium finish in the first moto! Motorcycle Superstore/Suzuki is excited to get the opportunity to work with this “Dark Horse” in his rookie season as a professional.
Kyle Cunningham – 26 years old from Fort Worth, TX. Cunningham is a well-known veteran in the 250 class, proving year after year that he is always a top competitor in the field. Motorcycle Superstore/Suzuki is very excited to have Kyle join them this season, not only because of his high level of racing but to also help their rookie riders learn the ropes in the Pro ranks. The Texas native is hungrier than ever to get back in podium form and is ready to take on the 2016 season with his new team, Motorcycle Superstore/Suzuki.
