NICK KOUWENBERG, EMX250 CHAMPION, TO RACE IN AMERICAN SUPERCROSS

151224_102

Nick Kouwenberg, Honda Jtech European 250 Motocross Champion, will make the journey west to compete in the 2016 season of the AMA Supercross 250SX West Region championship.

With support from American Honda, the Dutchman will take on the eight West Region rounds before the European motocross season starts in Valkenswaard at the end of March.

The 24-year old, who is already preparing to start his European title defence with Jtech, will face a new challenge on American soil where the stadium riding style is very different to what he will be used to.

Kouwenberg is no stranger to supercross though, after taking the European Supercross Lites title at EICMA this year. As well as embarking on what is widely considered to be a European rider’s dream, Nick will also accrue valuable competitive time aboard the CRF250R.

As part of the AMA Supercross series, the 250SX West Region championship pits 250cc riders against each other in major Western U.S. locations in a series of heats and a last-chance qualifier before the 15-lap feature race at each event.
