MAD Peter Stevens Racing are pleased to announce their junior and senior development racing teams for 2017.
Expanding on last years junior development team running in collaboration with the MAD Peter Stevens KTM coaching program, the 2017 team will see a return of the very successful junior development program, whilst introducing a senior team consisting of riders competing across all three classes of the MXN series – MXD, MX2 and MX1.
MAD coaching director and team manager Joe Stevens, is a familiar face to the MXN tour as series commentator on NRGTV for the past three seasons. For Joe, the addition of the MAD Peter Stevens senior development team to the MX Nationals series is an exciting prospect.
“I’m thrilled to announce our 2017 race team program. For me this has been a few years in the making, I have always supported riders competing in the MXN series through the MAD brand and obviously I work very closely with the series commentating on NRGTV, so to be able to take the next step by fielding a full team for 2017 is a huge progression for both myself and all of our team partners. The addition of the MXN senior team will play a key role in our rider development program, as we can now offer those riders on our junior squad the opportunity to travel with the team to race the junior support classes at MXN events, and furthermore offer junior riders a full team ride in MXD for their first season as a senior, complete with a team transporter, mechanic and tech support, coaching and a mentor to show them the ropes.”
“Our team riders and their families can fly to the events just like the factory teams and focus on developing their racing careers, not having to stress every little detail of making it to the races and being in the privateer struggle. This is often a privilege reserved for very few graduating junior riders and we are excited to be able to help our junior development team riders and their families take that next step into the pro ranks with a long term plan to stay in the sport and make it all the way into the premier classes of MX2 and MX1.”
