After a break through year in 2015 on board his BCP Pro Circuit Honda CRF250R Taj Marshall has signed on again under the watchful eye of Team Manager and coach Lee Hogan for 2016. The pair had a stellar year in what was the first year running of the newly formed Factory Honda Junior Team. Marshall was in a league of his own at this year’s National Junior Motocross Championships where he won the premiere 250cc class by a whopping 24 points over his BCP Pro Circuit Honda team-mate Trent Collins who has also signed on with the team for 2016. The pair holeshotting and winning four of the five finals between them at this year’s week long event.
“I’m so happy to be defending the number one plate with the same tight crew that I had in my corner this year,” said Marshall.
“The bikes are sensational with Tim Vare from Eight11 keeping everything spot on and the connection I have with Lee works so well. Whether he is cracking the whip on me while we are training on the bike or just joking around under the tent. Everyone just gets along so well and it’s a fun place to be. I’m really looking forward to finishing off my last year in juniors with all the same sponsors and a team that I know works like clockwork.”
The nationally backed BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development team goes into its second year running with some big expectations and a target firmly on it’s back.
“We had a really good year in 2015 and the pressure will be on for us to perform at that same level in 2016,” said Team Manager Lee Hogan.
“But with that being said, we are in a better position on paper than where we were 12 months ago. We have three sensational riders, more support from our sponsors and once again I have Tim Vare in my corner who made such a big difference this year. Luck plays such a huge role in racing but if you do your homework, prepare the way you should and have the right equipment then you give yourself the best shot. We are putting our best foot forward and I’m so happy with my boys that I have on board. Any form of junior sport is all about families and you can’t help but get caught up in the hype and emotion of it all. It’s pretty special.”
