New JGRMX/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing Team rider Fredrick Noren scored a career-best result in his debut ride on the Suzuki RM-Z450 at the weekend’s sixth round of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Southwick in Massachusetts, USA; his first race after taking over from injured Justin Hill.

He delivered strong results, carding an impressive top-five result in the first moto and finishing seventh overall on the day. Suzuki RM-Z250 rider Alex Martin also displayed steady results with a top-10 overall, as teammate Kyle Peters was held back by a pair of crashes.

Noren received a call early last week to join the JGRMX/ Yoshimura/ Suzuki Factory Racing Team as a fill-in Hill. Racing as privateer for most of the Pro Motocross series, the Swedish fan-favourite jumped at the opportunity and kicked-off his Suzuki debut strongly.
