JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing has signed Fredrik Noren for the remainder of the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship as Justin Hill’s replacement, who’s currently recovering from shoulder surgery.

Kyle Chisholm, who rode the High Point and WW Ranch nationals as a race by race fill-in for Hill, will continue to ride an RM-Z450 with support from HEP Motorsports and Suzuki.

“I’m really thankful and excited to race for the JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing Team this summer,” said Noren. “The bike and program is a great fit for me and I’m looking forward to getting excellent results together.

“This opportunity lifts the weight off my shoulders after racing the opening five rounds as a privateer. It is a huge blessing and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.”

The factory Suzuki team currently fields Alex Martin and Kyle Peters in the 250MX division. Southwick hosts round six of the series this weekend.
