Awesome choice for BETA Motorcycles and Jonny Walker for 2021 season when the FIM and WESS join forces for the first time in history to make a HARD ENDURO championship and a legit title for this sport! Is Beta going to strike this year by joining with Walker for the next season?
Probably is the time to tell you „We told you so!„, one month ago, but strictly at Jonny’s request we removed the post. So we’re not such a big „FAKE NEWS” spreader after all. We can tell you, that post got over 400.000 views in one day… so let’s keep it on the subject:
Jonny Walker has agreed terms with Beta in a Factory supported team to challenge for top honours in both the Super Enduro World Championship and the new FIM Extreme Championship
Walker is excited for his first appearance on the Beta and along with existing support from worldwide brands Redbull, Leatt, GoPro, POD. Jonny has put together a winning team that will challenge the podium at every event throughout the season.
“It is really exciting for me to undertake this new adventure, seeing the success that BETA has had in World Enduro championship over the years made my decision easy. Being able to carry on with my existing loyal sponsors is amazing and a credit to their vision and direction. I am really looking forward to working with new brands and helping them grow”.
Fabrizio Dini Factory Beta Team Manager
“Beta are extremely happy to support Jonny, he is for sure a very professional and strong world class rider. We are excited to work with him as we know that he is serious and professional about his business and the great results that will surely follow. Beta are also very happy that we are starting work as soon as possible and look forward to a good and successful season working together.”
Dave King Leatt Marketing and Athlete Manager.
“Over the last 4 years Jonny has become a real part of the Leatt family and is a pleasure to work alongside. His race results and personality speak for themselves but product testing and development has also helped take our brand to the next level. When Jonny first told us of his plans to run his own team for the coming year we didn’t think twice about continuing to support him. Leatt is excited to see Jonny get back to his winning ways and are looking forward to working with him for many years to come.”
With support from existing sponsors who can see the potential of the team and the opportunity to test and use new exciting products give the team enormous drive and motivation.
