JGRMX Suzuki will field Matt Bisceglia and Phil Nicoletti aboard RM-Z250 machines for the 2017 as part of the newly-formed partnership managed by Jeremy Albrecht.

With assistance from Yoshimura R&D, the JGRMX Suzuki 250 program is set to focus on re-energizing their quarter-litre program with their selection of talented contenders.

Bisceglia, a member of the MAD Racing Dirt Candy Suzuki squad alongside Australia’s Luke Clout for part of the 2016 season, will return to the familiar RM-Z250 to contest both motocross and supercross for 2017.

Long-time JGRMX team member and 450 regular, Nicolleti, will drop back to the RM-Z250 for the upcoming supercross series before jumping back up to the premier class board the RM-Z450 to finish the season outdoors.

JGRMX team owner, Coy Gibbs, looks forward to the addition of the 250 program for 2017 after running a dedicated 450 program since the team’s inception in 2008.

“We are looking forward to having a 250 effort this year as part of our team,” said Gibbs. “This is the perfect opportunity for riders who feel they have some unfinished business in the class like Phil and other riders like Matt who are looking for a stepping stone into the 450 ranks in the coming years.”

Bisceglia and Nicoletti will join confirmed JGRMX Suzuki 450 riders Justin Barcia and Weston Peick for the entire 2017 season.
