Dual 2013 Australian champion Matt Moss has revealed he’s officially signed with Motul Pirelli Suzuki for the 2014 season to defend his MX Nationals and supercross number one plates.
Moss, 25, will return aboard the RM-Z450 next year in a focused factory Suzuki effort, also confirming he will contest the opening four rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series in the US.
“I’ve signed with Suzuki for 2014, plus we’re heading over to America to ride the first four rounds over there,” Moss told MotoOnline.com.au. “I can’t wait to continue my relationship with Suzuki and to try defend these titles.
“I found out today for sure – I’ll be riding a Suzuki RM-Z450, basically the bike I rode here, but with some more help from Yoshimura and the factory Suzuki team over there. I’ll get to ride the test track, do it right and try to go good.”
Moss will embark on his AMA assault in early December, giving him near a full month’s worth of preparation in the US.
“I’ll probably head over in the next two to three weeks,” he added. “I just need to get the right people behind me. I’d really like Dan Reardon with me, to train me and keep me focused, because I won’t have an off-season so I need to ride the right amount and not over-train.
“When I get back I’ll pretty much head right into motocross, so I need to keep my mind on the job and focus on the goals ahead. We’ll just keep going the way we are.”
