Having announced our new program structure and the six rider Trail Jesters KTM Racing team, there is one more element to put in place for 2017. The opportunity presented itself to provide a broader range of support for some of our young guns by helping them gain new sponsors and additional support.
In this context today we announce two new Trail Jesters Athletes.
- Kevin Messina – Kevin earned two #1 plates in 2016, the JDay Offroad GP Big Wheel and JDay Offroad Sprint Enduro Big Wheel championships. Kevin is 16 years old and will ride a Yamaha YZ 125 in the JDay Offroad Junior class and in JDay Sprint Enduro A200 class. Kevin will also contest select NETRA and GNCC events.
- Parker Goyette – Parker is the 2016 JDay Offroad Mini C champion. Parker is 12 years old and will ride a Yamaha YZ 85 contesting the JDay Offroad Mini B class in 2017. Parker will also contest select GNCC, Winchester Speed Park, NEMX and NESC events.
Today also marks the formation P27/Trail Jesters. This new Yamaha team will be managed by Paul Goyette and we look forward to introducing the team and sponsors at the upcoming JDay Offroad banquet on January 21, 2017.
