For this year’s 2018 FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN), Team Australia will have special backing from Moto Outlet. As a full-service online motorcycle gear and accessories retailer, Moto Outlet are right behind Team Australia - which features Queenslanders Mitch Evans and Hunter Lawrence as well as Rockhampton-born Team Manager Michael Byrne among its number - and are backing them to succeed at Redbud, America on October 6-7, 2018.
Co-Owner of Moto Outlet, Chris Urquhart described why they got involved with Team Australia; “Both Shane Booth and myself have come from a long motocross racing background and have been involved in the sport for over 30 years. We are very passionate about the sport and not enough people step up these days and get involved to back the team. If we can have some involvement and help the Australian team rise to the top then it makes us very happy and it all worth it.
“For us to contribute to getting the team over there and help fund equipment and budget is what we want to help out with. We also have a long-term relationship with Team Manager, Michael Byrne. It’s all about helping guys go racing, which we love.
“We always have a crew together to watch the MXoN live timing, as we are huge fans! The team this year is really solid and hopefully they can get a great result.
“When you look at the likes of Mitch Evans who is super talented and years ahead of his time, he will be hard to put out of the top five. Kirk Gibbs is also looking strong and always gets results. Last year he performed magnificently. Hunter Lawrence, I would go as far to say he is one of the most talented dirt bike riders I’ve ever seen and I’ve followed his quest in the world championship for a while now. If the stars align then a podium may be possible!
Moto Outlet is a retail and online store that Co-Founders Chris Urqhart and Shane Booth have built together. They started with Moto Development, a rider training program and last December they have built the store to get it up and running. They are committed to rider development and building a one stop shop for Motocross, Adventure and Road gear and accessories.
