EUROPE. West Australian, Caleb Grothues, has signed to contest the EMX250 series in 2017 and 2018. The Digaprocess motocross team who will switch from Suzuki to Husqvarna machinery for the season ahead have announced the exciting signing.
Caleb will join a host of Australian’s in the GP paddock, Caleb will join Jed Beaton in the EMX250 championship whilst Caleb Ward and Hunter Lawrence will compete in the MX2 World Championship. There is no doubt that the GP paddock continues to grow and attract international talent from all over the world.
Caleb has experience competing in the EMX250 championship as his plan in 2015 was to contest the full series as a privateer. However, unfortunately he picked up an injury and was ruled out for most of the season. In 2016, he concentrated in Australia but he has got another good opportunity in the GP paddock again. On the 20th January, the West Australian will move to Germany to prepare for the season ahead!
Caleb Grothues: “To be able to have an opportunity come up like this is a dream come true! I’ve always wanted to race in Europe and now the opportunity to race for a great team is so awesome! I really couldn’t be here without the help from everyone throughout my junior career and especially my Mum and Dad, they’ve been there to support me the whole way and they are continuing to do that throughout the next few years!”
