One of the youngest teams in the GP paddock, Team F&H Kawasaki has a short but already successful story as they have clinched MX2 GP podium results during each of the past two seasons as well as the 2019 European title. Just a few years after its creation by Harry Fase, a truly passionate motocross enthusiast, F&H has been involved in both the EMX250 and MX2 championships this season and it was the logical progression for the team's European champion Roan van de Moosdijk to transfer to the MX2 World Championship after his enthralling performance in Turkey when he already clinched his maiden GP podium at just his second attempt. He will be joined in 2020 by Mathys Boisrame, the French youngster who recorded a top ten world ranking during his rookie MX2 GP campaign this season; the 2018 European champion, who turned twenty-one this summer, has shown great potential with numerous top ten results throughout the season and an overall podium in Germany. The team will line up three riders in the MX2 World Championship next year; the identity of the third exciting signing will be revealed soon.
Mathys Boisrame: “I’m really happy to finally join the F&H Kawasaki team as we already talked together last year after my European title. This year was a learning curve for me in the World Championship; I did my best with the material I had but for sure there’s a big step between the European and World Championship and I was so impressed when I did a test with the KX250 Kawasaki. The bike handles so well, is really powerful and the team is so professional that it didn’t take me long to know I wanted to sign with them. It will be a huge change for me as I will move to the team base in the Netherlands on November 1st; for sure it’s not easy to leave home but I know what I want. Being close to the team, working with Marc de Reuver and riding in the sand will bring me all the tools for us to succeed together.”
Roan Van de Moosdijk: “I’m already looking forward to next season; it will be the first full GP campaign for me with many more races than before and a lot of travelling all over the world! But I’m confident as we all know - I mean me, Marc and the entire team - what we have to do this winter to be prepared for the new season. Of course after my podium in Turkey everyone expects more for next season, but it will be my rookie season and my initial aim will be consistency, fighting for the top five each race and hopefully claiming some podiums. I’m delighted to continue with the F&H Kawasaki team as we have established a great relationship; we know the bike and everything so that makes it much easier for next year!”
Nathalie Fase (F&H Kawasaki Team Manager): “We had a great season winning the Dutch and European titles, finishing fifth and sixth in the World Championship and we are very happy to add Mathys Boisrame, the 2018 European Champion, to our team for the upcoming years! We look forward to the new season and hope to be able to push again for great podiums! All ingredients are in the house, so bring it on!”
Steve Guttridge (Kawasaki Europe Racing Manager): “The F&H team have delivered an incredible season for Kawasaki in both the EMX2 category with Roan's championship title and also in the World MX2 class with both Henry's and Adam's continuous challenges for podium positions throughout the series! We will be following both Roan and new arrival Mathys closely into the 2020 season in the MX2 GPs with high hopes that they will again push all the limits and secure Kawasaki even more top results on their team's KX250 machinery.”
